Illuminating Crosswalks Can Save Lives

Pedestrian deaths are on the rise, especially at night. According to the 2020 Preliminary Data from the Governors Highway Safety Association, the number of nighttime pedestrian fatalities grew by 54% between 2010 and 2019, compared to a 16% increase in daytime pedestrian fatalities.


Illuminating crosswalks can save lives

According to many authors (Reaction times as an index of visual conspicuity when driving at night - Plainis - 2002 - Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics - Wiley Online Library Effects of Environmental Lighting Conditions on Operating Speeds on Urban Arterials - Marco Bassani, Guglielmina Mutani, 2012 ( the majority of road accidents in industrialized nations occur at night; hence, improvements in night visibility may be a key influence in lowering the frequency of accidents.

Research suggests illuminating crosswalks can save lives (An analysis of nighttime pedestrian accidents at specially illuminated crosswalks - ScienceDirect). Increased illumination intensity at pedestrian crossings has been linked to a substantial reduction in nighttime pedestrian collisions (Ped Spotlight 2021 FINAL 3.23.21.pdf (



As studies show, crosswalks can be dangerous for pedestrians, specially at night, so SERNIS decided to reimagine crosswalks making them (and pedestrians crossing them) far more noticeable to drivers.


New kind of Road Stud

SR-CROSSLED-S is a new kind of road stud. It must be installed in all the tops of the white cross lines creating a homogeneous illumination of the crosswalk.

The large lighted area has great visual impact, making almost impossible for oncoming drivers to overlook them.

SR-CROSSLED-S has low profile (flat on the surface), ensuring that it will not disturb circulation.



Ready for the roads

It has robust construction - completely stainless-steel structure - with high strength, allowing it to be used in any type of traffic application.

The anti-skidding treatment on surface will avoid slipping accidents from motorcycles and bikes.

Protection Index: IP67, IK10 make it completely waterproof and the magic gel inside protects every element inside.


Intensive LEDs with very low power consumptions

The wired system can be powered by electric or solar energy. It has very low power consumption.

Standard version is with white LEDs but it can also have red and green LEDs that are connected to traffic lights, adverting the driver to stop.

Similar to the normal road studs, SR-CROSSLED-S can be controlled with PC500.

It has easy maintenance.
