HAWK System Description

The HAWK crosswalk is a unique design and has proven to be safer and more effective than conventional crosswalk designs.
  • The acronym HAWK stands for High intensity Activated cross WalK
  • The HAWK crossing system is effective for the motorist, safer for pedestrians, and less costly than a full blown traffic signal system.
  • The systems are also more energy efficient than traditional signal systems as the vehicle signal heads go black when the system is not in use.
  • The unique double red signal display above a single yellow display gets the motorist's attention by the unusual shape of the display cluster.
