These are the crosswalk systems designed with sonic and tactile cues to help blind and visually impaired pedestrians know when they can cross the street. In San Francisco, most are framed in a yellow casing and have a raised arrow on the pedestrian crossing button. One Bay Curious listener had some questions about why they sound the way they do and how they work. That sound has an official name: the rapid tick. In the s and '90s, research was done on which APS signals were most effective. The overhead cuckoo-chirp signals, which are installed in many parts of the U. The study found the rapid tick sound, instead, helped pedestrians make faster, more accurate decisions when at a crosswalk. It is now the recommended sound, except in certain cases. When the crosswalk heads are less than 10 feet apart — for example when the buttons for intersecting streets are mounted on a single pole — a verbal announcement is preferred to help people differentiate which street's "walk" sign is lit. While the verbal announcement seems like it would be a superior option in all cases, it requires the pedestrian to speak the language in which the message is delivered.
