Quebec is an unusual place where drivers do not stop at crosswalks where people are waiting to cross. This issue has unfortunately resulted in over 200 injuries across the province, in the past few years alone. To address this situation, the Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) has innovatively transformed a few crosswalks into pop-up barricades, or ‘crossing fences’ to get drivers to stop and realize that crosswalks are there to protect pedestrians.
