The SafePace 800 sign offers unparalleled versatility with both a radar speed display and variable message board in one streamlined sign. The full matrix LED sign is mounted on the SafePace Cruiser speed trailer and can be rotated from a vertical driver feedback sign to a horizontal message board. You can choose to display any text, graphic, or animated message and can show up to four rotating messages at a time, changing the sign message based on scheduling and driver behavior.  Whether you use it to slow traffic, to notify or alert drivers, or to direct vehicles, the SafePace 800 LED display sign will get your message across.
