TAMPA, Fla. — The City of Tampa is testing out a type of intersection aimed at keeping pedestrians safer.
It is called a "pedestrian scramble" or an "all-pedestrian phase."
All pedestrians will have the light to walk at the same time at the intersection of Rome Avenue and Main Street, located just a few blocks from Just Elementary and Stewart Middle Magnet Schools.
Drivers will have red lights while the pedestrian have the walk sign.
Pedestrian scrambles are not new, but many cities around the country are starting to adopt the idea.
City officials tell us the all-pedestrian phase will only happening during school times for now as they continue to monitor its effectiveness.
