The new HAWK signal, which stands for High-intensity Activated crossWalK, is now operational - allowing pedestrians and bicyclists to safely cross Sheridan Boulevard. This new signal, also referred to as a beacon, is the first of its kind in New York state. A signal has also been placed on Kenmore Avenue and more are planned to be installed in Kenmore and the Village of Williamsville.
A study released by the Federal Highway Administration found that vehicle/pedestrian crashes were reduced by 69% after a HAWK signal was installed. Of course, the key to the success is education on how the light works.
What the Lights Mean
Signal is Dark: This is the normal state of the light until it is activated by a person trying to cross. Proceed if crosswalk is clear.
Flashing yellow: Light has been activated. Motorists should prepare to stop.
Solid yellow: Motorists should stop if possible.
Solid red: Motorists must stop, allowing pedestrians and cyclists to cross. Motorists may not proceed until light starts flashing red.
Flashing red: Motorists must stop, then may proceed if the crosswalk is clear.
