Web Enabled Radar Signs
Most sign manufacturers haven’t yet harnessed the power of traffic data that can be gathered right from your radar sign. At Traffic Logix, not only is every single model of our speed sign lineup web-enabled but we make that data easily accessible and affordable. Every SafePace Evolution sign comes with one year of cloud access absolutely free. Moreover, once you do pay for a cloud license, it cost much less than our competitors. Why? Because we think traffic data is critical to making safety improvements that work for your roads.
How Important is Traffic Data?
With more than 3,000 deaths every single day in car crashes, it’s obvious that intervention is needed. And while corporate or campus roads may seem an unlikely place for car crashes, the increased pedestrian activity creates increased risk. What does that have to do with traffic data? As far back as 1924, a D.C. conference on road safety reported that “statistics regarding street and highway accidents are so vital to any comprehensive understanding and treatment of the safety problem that their collection and analysis….are essential.” This still rings true today although the means of gathering statistics is a whole lot simpler.
What Secrets Can Traffic Data Reveal?
What if the speed signs you use to slow drivers down could also offer valuable insight into what problem areas are? All Traffic Logix SafePace signs have the ability to gather traffic data and statistics. They can collect data while in operation or with the sign face off in “stealth mode.” When does speeding tend to occur? How often do people speed? How many people violate the posted speed limits? Are there certain times of day that people are more likely to speed? All those questions, and many more, can be answered with traffic data. The insights they offer can help you make further improvements to the safety of your campus roads.
