Correspondingly, what is the difference between a pelican and a puffin crossing?
Like the Pelican Crossing, the Puffin still requires a pedestrian to press a button for crossing the road. The differences between the Pelican and Puffin crossings are that Puffins detect pedestrians in the waiting area, but also whilst they are crossing the road.
There are various different types of pedestrian crossings, these are: Zebra, Pelican, Puffin, Toucan, Pegasus (also known as Equestrian crossings). A school crossing patrol officer might also want you to stop near schools.
