Mid-Block Pedestrian Signal (MPS)
A Mid-Block Pedestrian Signal (MPS) is a traffic signal designed to assist pedestrians to safely cross a busy street between intersections. MPSs are installed where there are high pedestrian volumes. Vehicle stop bars are kept 1 metre from the crosswalk to minimize conflicts with pedestrians.
Pedestrian Countdown Timers
The City of Brampton has implemented a new policy to install pedestrian countdown timers at all new and upgraded traffic signals. The timer counts down when the flashing orange hand symbol is displayed to indicate to the pedestrian how much time they have to safely cross.
