​What is an RRFB?


The City of Frisco has installed a Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) at several middle school crosswalks. The RRFB alerts drivers that a pedestrian is ready to cross the street. The RRFB uses bright yellow lights that flash when a pedestrian pushes the crosswalk button. Read more about this supplemental warning device.
