The Risks of Speeding
Engineering safer roads starts with an understanding of what you’re trying to protect against. The perils of speeding are clear; thousands of people lose their lives every year because of speeding and reckless drivers. Oftentimes, drivers aren’t even aware how fast they’re going. Yet the damage they cause to themselves, pedestrians, bicyclists, and property can all be avoided if only they’d slow down.
Slowing Cars Efficiently
There are many ways to slow cars down. Some cities opt for educational campaigns, featuring large billboards promoting safer driving. Some use fear to further these campaigns, showing imagery of the deadly results speeding can have. Other cities choose to appeal to driver attention with devices such as interactive radar signs that alert drivers and remind them to slow down. Physical traffic calming such as speed humps or road narrowing are another option to reduce speeds. With so many options, it can be difficult to assess- which is the best way to slow cars down?
The Answer is Clear
The best way to slow cars down on your roads isn’t the same as the best way to slow cars on another city’s roads. There’s a reason there are so many options to slow cars down. Every roadway has its own unique challenges and its own best fit solution. At Traffic Logix, we came to this realization soon after we started selling our unique line of interlocking speed humps and cushions. We began including custom rubber curbing for traffic circles and road narrowing and soon added radar speed signs, bike lane curbs, and then speed cameras. Because the best way to slow cars on your streets isn’t one size fits all.
Radar signs are a popular fit for many local and highway speed challenges. But at Traffic Logix, we believe that the road to safety is paved with options. That’s why we offer over ten sign models- including one that can show positive or negative emojis in response to driver speed. You can choose from signs that simply show speed to ones that can flash Slow Down or even custom messages of your choice. We even offer fully customizable sign faces that can show any combination of text or speed for ultimate versatility.
