Safety: that’s what your neighborhood and community should represent to the families living there. Most vehicle collisions involving pedestrians occur in urban and residential areas. The facts are sobering.
So what can you do to improve pedestrian safety in your neighborhood or urban community? DriveBrite™ traffic calming devices are an immediately and lastingly effective means of encouraging driver compliance with posted speed limits. As numerous studies have shown, even small reductions in traveling speed can result in dramatically lower impact speeds during vehicle-pedestrian collisions, and in many cases eradicates the collision entirely by giving the driver time to come to a complete stop.
Lower impact speeds = increased pedestrian survival
Dynamic radar signs are a far more effective means of traffic calming than:
DriveBrite™ traffic calming devices actively attract driver attention, increasing awareness and causing driver’s to notice and adjust their speeds. Drivebrite™ signs feature eye-catching, reflective face-plates, bright LED numeral displays which are visible in every light condition, built-in resistance to moisture and vandalism, and the industry’s only fully modular electronics unit. This modular unit makes maintenance and services fast and easy, on the rare occasions they are necessary, reducing labor costs and maintenance-downtime.
The DriveBrite™ sign is fully programmable: Set up sensitivity-thresholds and varying driver alerts – the LED numerals can flash at speed violators, and white LED strobes can attract the attention of even more serious violators. Browse the variety of driver feedback sign options available: from sign face colors, to size to our popular solar powered radar signs.
Our driver feedback signs can be set with a minimum speed threshold to ensure only passing cars will trigger the display, so you can save power. Conversely, a maximum speed readout will prevent drivers from trying to “race” the sign. Another feature of our radar speed signs is the ability to download collected data via a wireless Bluetooth connection. These signs record data such as traffic volume, vehicle speeds, and even the time and date of instances of perceived vandalism (Drivebrite™ signs can detect violent vibrations, such as would be caused by deliberate strikes to the sign).
Designed to be lightweight, easy to install, and reliably durable, DriveBrite™ signs are an ideal addition to neighborhood safety measures.
