Residents hope crosswalk lights will keep pedestrians safe

Hartsdale residents are hoping that an upgrade made at a crosswalk on a busy avenue will keep pedestrians safe.



Lights have been installed at the crosswalk on East Hartsdale Avenue in Greenburgh. After a pedestrian pushes a button, lights will flash to warn drivers they are about to cross.



Greenburgh officials have also reduced the speed limit from 30 to 25 mph on the avenue in an effort to slow down drivers.



One year ago, a woman was seriously injured and her dog was killed when they were struck by a car in the crosswalk.
