2014-02-26 13:52:41 - Driver feedback signs also known as radar speed signs relay traffic speeds and speed warnings to slow motorists more safely and at lower cost than other strategies as studies shown on TraffiCalm website.
Post Falls, ID – This week TraffiCalm Systems is introducing their updated website at www.TraffiCalmSystems.com providing extensive research and reasons why radar speed signs that display motorist speeds have a strong calming effect on traffic. These radar speed signs ( www.trafficalmsystems.com/products/) can be easily installed in almost any location where traffic speeds are a problem.
Extensive research shows radar speed signs like those manufactured by TraffiCalm Systems are more effective, often less expensive, and less problematic than speed bumps, narrowing driving areas, or posting a police presence at a problem area. Speed bumps and narrowing roads cause problems for emergency vehicles, school buses, and snow removal trucks. None of these problems apply to radar speed signs.
“Hosts of studies show the
effectiveness of radar speed signs on highways, municipal roadways, neighborhoods, and school zones. Many organizations and municipalities are granted speed monitor funding by federal or local governments. Driver feedback signs have received widespread media attention, with good reason,” said John Regan, TraffiCalm Systems president.
TraffiCalm is a leading designer and manufacturer of driver feedback signs for roadwork and construction zones, school and university safe zones, neighborhood and pedestrian safety, home owner associations, hospitals and municipalities, along with business, commercial, and industrial.
Research shows many drivers are not fully aware how fast they are driving. A radar speed sign posting their speed has an immediate slowing and traffic calming effect on motorists. Traffic studies show when one driver slows, others slow as well.
Many schools, cities, and other organizations are given federal and/or local monies for development and installation of strategies to keep traffic speeds under control. Radar speed signs give organizations the most effective method available. Signs are often much less expensive than costly road redesign. Organizations find they can achieve more with their funding while enjoying greater positive results.
Depending on the sign, radar signs can be slim and easy to install. Bluetooth wireless communications are available so authorities can download traffic information. “You will know exactly how effective each radar sign is in slowing traffic speeds,” Ragan said.
Radar speed signs are often equipped with solar panels to power the sign allowing for quick and easy installation. Solar radar speed signs eliminate the need for routing a power source to the sign. Signs can be equipped with blinking strobes and digital warning demands driver attention. Signs can be programmed with thresholds so they only light up when dangerous speeds are present. TraffiCalm Systems has recently introduced their new portable trailers for quick and easy setup of their traffic calming signs.
TafficCalm Systems maintains a network of regional traffic partners who can assist in needed studies and installation.
