Pittsburgh City Councilman Corey O'Connor introduced legislation today for a pilot program that would put flags at intersections so that pedestrians could better alert motorists when they cross.

The $10,000 program would install PedFlags, as they're called, at intersections that currently lack good traffic signals. The small, brightly colored flags would be left in holders on poles so that pedestrians could grab them before crossing.

The bill will be up for discussion and a preliminary vote next Wednesday.
