For private communities, ensuring the safety and security of residents and property is a top priority. And while there’s many ways to do that, recycled rubber traffic calming solutions are often overlooked. But for hundreds of communities across the country, these are helping to protect HOA property and enhance safety for pedestrians. Find out how mini speed humps, speed tables, and rubber curbing can help protect your community as well as prevent property damage in your HOA.
Mini Speed Humps: Guarding Gates and Promoting Stops
Entry and exit gates are fundamental to the security of any private community. However, they are also prone to collisions by speeding vehicles. Installing mini speed humps near these gates can be a game-changer. These traffic calming devices compel drivers to slow down as they enter and exit your community. They help to reduce the risk of accidents and protect your valuable gate infrastructure.
In addition, many private communities report that vehicles tend to drive right by stop signs without slowing down. Mini speed humps are growing in popularity as a way to address this challenge. Communities are simply installing the recycled, highly visible humps right before stop signs to increase the likelihood of compliance. The result is that drivers do slow down, helping to improve safety for pedestrians and other drivers.
The mini speed humps are also an environmentally friendly choice, made from recycled rubber. They are durable, long-lasting, weather resistant for cold or hot environments, and require minimal maintenance.
Speed Tables: Enhancing Pedestrian Safety
In areas where there aren’t any crosswalks, pedestrians are often at risk. Speed tables, essentially elongated speed humps, provide an excellent solution to this problem. They offer a visual crossing platform for pedestrians while simultaneously slowing vehicles down and reminding them to wait for people to cross. Made from recycled rubber, these speed tables are a cost-effective, eco-friendly, and efficient way of ensuring pedestrian safety.
Speed Humps and Cushions: Regulating Speed
For areas where speeding is a perennial issue, speed humps and cushions offer an effective solution. By compelling vehicles to slow down, they ensure that safe speed limits are maintained throughout your community. The recycled rubber humps and speed cushions from Traffic Logix can be customized based on your community’s needs and posted speed limits. Speed humps offer a more traditional response to speeding while speed cushions offer a unique solution that allows emergency vehicles to pass unimpeded while slowing other vehicles down.
Cycle Lane Curbing: Creating Safe Paths
Dedicated lanes for walking or biking are another way to significantly enhance safety within your community. Cycle lane curbing from Traffic Logix offers two-sided bike lane curbing that can be used to create spaces for people to walk or bike safely. These curbs are highly visible, durable, and easy to install, providing a safe and designated space for cyclists and pedestrians away from vehicular traffic.
