One of the big draws of gated private communities and homeowners association (HOA) is the safety and security that they offer their residents. In fact, gated communities often attract people who are concerned about safety, including those with young children or pets. In recent years, such vulnerable road users have become more at risk as the percentage of fatalities of people killed outside vehicles has increased by more than 50% from 20% to 32% of crash fatalities.
Slowing cars down to safer reduce speed can make the difference between life and death on local community roads. Slower speeds save lives. Driver feedback signs remind drivers of posted speed limits while alerting them to their current vehicle speeds. They have been shown to change driving behavior and sustain lower speeds even over time. Physical solutions such as speed cushions and speed bumps are another effective way to compel drivers to traffic safety and obey posted speed limits.
The Traffic Logix line of SafePace radar signs and speed humps and cushions will decrease the likelihood of accidents on your roads, and reduce the severity when a crash occurs. They have prevented countless accidents in communities around the world and can return safety to your neighborhood’s roads.
Keeping streets safe and preventing accidents is even more of a priority for property managers and community boards than for typical municipalities. Car crashes are the top cause of unintentional death for children and traffic accidents happen most in daylight hours and in good weather, when children are likely to be outside playing. An ITE report on residential safety highlighted the importance of slowing speeders on such neighborhood roads that are used by children, as speed is a key risk factor in child pedestrian injury and children are unlikely to be able to make wise decisions about road use.
