What is the program?  How does it work?


At a number* of crosswalks a bucket has been attached to the pole on each side of the street.  In each bucket there are a supply of flags.  As a pedestrian one is encouraged to take a flag and waive it prominently both prior to and while crossing the road.

The flags are 16" x 16", bright orange in colour, with a strip of reflective tape, and the words "Property of Waverley Road Crosswalk Flags" or "Property of WRCF" printed on them.

After crossing the road the pedestrian deposits the flag in the bucket on the other side.

Pedestrians are encouraged to take note of whether there may not be any flags on the other side, and if so to take a few across with them.

It's as simple as that.
