Today road accidents are rising at an alarming rate and 16% of the total number of road accidents involves pedestrian out of which ironically 20% of the accident takes place at the zebra crossing. The paper presents the idea of pedestrian accident rescue system which will help preventing accidents at pedestrian crossing, thickly pedestrian crowded area such as ,school periphery and playground. First, a geophone will be deployed at the pedestrian accident prone area , which will convert the ground movement (caused by the pedestrians) into electrical voltage which is recorded and sent to the traffic system recording station. Second, the recording station is syncronised with the traffic lights nearest to the accident prone area ,which will indicate a specific light say red, to make the driver aware of the fact of crowded pedestrian at the impending junction.
