STATE LAW STOP FOR PEDESTRIAN (R1-6a) HIP w/base
Improve Pedestrian Safety
Every day pedestrians are at risk when crossing the street. There are approximately 5,000 pedestrian deaths per year in the United States. This is an alarming problem that needs to be addressed with durable, low cost safety solutions.
There is a need for traffic safety products designed to quickly grab a motorist s attention and alert them of pedestrians in the crosswalk. The Green Cross Safety System is able to quickly get a drivers attention by utilizing fluorescent yellow green on the In-Street Pedestrian Signs. Our vertical panels and bases are easy to use and there is something available for every budget.

We offer many options for your crosswalk safety program suited to meet your budget.
o Durable yet extremely lightweight safety posts to highlight crosswalk areas

In-street pedestrian crossing signs are most effective when used during peak pedestrian use. For example, if being used in a school cross walk, the most effective times for the system to be in the roadway would be during school commute times. The Green Cross system is most effective on unsignalized low-speed two-lane streets. The mobility of the Green Cross system allows it to be taken in and out of the street during the school day enhancing the effectiveness of the system.
Green Cross Bases:
Within the Green Cross system there are several mounting options for different conditions. All bases are designed to withstand the rigors of the field including vehicle impacts and extreme weather conditions. Our 10#, 35# "Banana" and 40# "Yeti" bases are environmental friendly, constructed of recycled rubber tire and polymer binders.
FG 300 Base:
The 300 base is for fixed installations where the post and base will remain on the road surface for an extended period of time. Bases are constructed of a UV-stable high-impact plastic. Safety posts are mounted to the base with two nylon locking pins. Posts are secured to the roadway with either epoxy or bolts.
FG 300 10# Round Portable Base:
The 10# rubber base is for use in situations where the base and post are moved on and off the road surface repeatedly. This base is lighter weight and can be moved easily.
FG 300 35# "Banana" Portable Base:
A rubber base for demanding applications; it has the weight to support the larger crosswalk signs. For an added convenience the 35# base features a recessed handle, which makes picking up and moving it a snap. Bases also nest together for easy storage during transport.
"Yeti" 40# Portable Base:
The Yeti is a heavy duty portable base for your most challenging crosswalk locations. It will stand up to high winds and the larger crosswalk signs. The Yeti bases snap together for simplified storage and the molded in handles make transport a snap.
Green Cross Signs:

In-Street Pedestrian Crossing signs are used to remind drivers of laws regarding right of way. These signs can be mounted on our Model FG 342 EFX posts or X-Tube Upright and placed in the street utilizing either our fixed, 20# hex or 35# "Banana" or 40# "Yeti" base.
Both signs meet the standards of the 2003 MUTCD Yield to Pedestrian (R1-6) or the Stop for Pedestrian (R1-6A). These signs may be used at un-signalized school crossings; if an island is available they should be placed on the island.
Our Flexible Signs are constructed of flexible prismatic vinyl with stays at the top and bottom for support. Our Rigid Signs are constructed of durable UHMW plastic and utilize cube corner prismatic sheeting.
