RED BLUFF, Calif. – Caltrans installed reflective plates on stoplights in Red Bluff – to keep people safe if the power goes out.
The plates will help drivers to see busy intersections at night, in the case of a power outage which is something people can expect PG&E to mandate as we head back into wildfire season.
“Well, it provides more visibility. I noticed it immediately, I think it’s a great idea and I think they ought to put more of them up,” Red Bluff resident, Pam Diehl said.
People can find the plates at the intersections of Main and Antelope, and Main and Cedar Streets.
Caltrans said it plans to add more in the future. It began targeting high traffic areas throughout the state in the wake of PG&E planned blackouts.
