A Pedestrian Safety Action Plan is a plan developed by community stakehold- portation Officials’ (AASHTO, also called the Green Book) A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets states: • Reduce pedestrian risks at street crossing locations. This section contains advice on the design of pedestrian crossings generally.

Advice which is specific to one type of crossing is presented in the appropriate section. Proximity of Junctions Approach to a Side Road Crossings should be located away from conflict points at uncontrolled junctions.

Pedestrian crossings can be located at an intersection or mid-block. Provide pedestrian crossings at all legs of intersections. Pedestrians are unlikely to comply with a three-stage crossing and may place themselves in a dangerous situation as a result.

Install a pedestrian crossing where there is a significant pedestrian desire line. Inthe Ontario Ministry of Transportation unveiled B Pedestrian Crossing Treatments. This book provides practical guidance and application information on planning, designing, and operating pedestrian roadway crossing treatments and is a response to concerns over the cost of maintaining standard pedestrian crossover (PXO) or traffic control signals.

Driving laws for pedestrian crossovers and school crossings. Drivers - including cyclists - must stop and yield the whole roadway at pedestrian crossovers, school crossings and other locations where there is a crossing guard.
