The problem of traffic accident with the participation of pedestrians is especially urgent in the dark time of day and in the period of twilight when the visibility of pedestrians on the road decreases dramatically. They often enter the traffic lane in conditions of insufficient visibility and they do not always realize that they are visible at the last moment only. Due to poor visibility, drivers often do not see the person who crosses the road or react too late.
