A Puffin Crossing (Pedestrian User-Friendly INtelligent) is a type of pedestrian crossing.

It differs from a pelican crossing in that:

  • It has a sensor that keeps the traffic signals on red while someone crosses (rather than turning to flashing amber). It will also not turn red if the pedestrian moves away.
  • the lights controlling the pedestrians are on the near side of the road, rather than on the opposite side.

See pelican crossing for basic information.
