Crosswalk Flag Program

October 13, 2021

​Porter Street, with the help of the PAC and the City of Coquitlam has begun a new safety program. The Crosswalk Flag Program helps improve visibility and safety of people walking at crosswalks.

-Flag use is optional. People are not required to use a flag to cross the street.
-Yellow flags, flag holders and signs are placed at either side of the crosswalk.

To use the crosswalk flags:

-take a flag from the holder and raise it toward the street
-wait for traffic to stop to make sure you’re seen
-cross the street holding the flag
-leave the flag in the holder on the other side

When driving, be sure to do your part and always look for and yield to pedestrians.
