A local road authority may provide by ordinance for the designation of pedestrian
safety crossings on highways under the road authority's jurisdiction where pedestrian safety

ordinance may provide for timing of pedestrian signals for such crossings, consistent with the

in addition to any other control exercised by local road authorities over the timing of pedestrian
