According to Traffic Accident Statistics, the fatalities of accident while crossing is over represented. So, more active safety countermeasure should be considered to reduce the frequency and degree of severity of pedestrian-crossing involved accidents. The study analyses the safety effects of the Crossing Safety Assistant System which is composed of Led-embedded crosswalk lightings, text displayer and audio waning device for the safety consciousness both pedestrian and vehicles at crosswalk area. Operating speed of vehicles is reduced with statistical significance, and the level of vigilance expressed by pedestrian head movement to check out the vehicle existence is improved.
