Some people have used radar detectors for years in an effort to drive faster without getting a speeding ticket. While detectors may have limited effectiveness, and may cause legal problems if they're discovered, they do seem to allow some people to fly down the roads without consequence. That is, until they're involved in an accident from driving too fast.
Even the presence of a police car doesn't slow some people down, partly thanks to the idea that if you're in the middle of a line of speeding traffic, you're less likely to be ticketed than the person in the front or...Read More

Physical barriers and traffic calming measures that slow traffic down are the two most effective measures that can be used to prevent vehicle-related injuries and death in construction zones. Deaths of workers being hit by passing vehicles and vehicles involved in accidents make up between 40% and 50% of construction worker deaths, varying a bit from year to year. Other hazards such as drop-offs, heavy equipment rollovers, power lines and accidents with power equipment tend to make up the rest, along with workers being struck by construction vehicles, each in a smaller...Read More
Central Park in New York had a little flap last year involving their speed limit signs for bicycles in the park. Cyclists were ticketed for exceeding the 15mph limit, but the tickets were revoked and then the signs were removed. According to the park's commissioner in the 90s, a study done in 1991 led them to put up 15mph speed limit signs for bikes. The commissioner said that they drove cars next to bicycles to determine "how fast you could go and then stop without killing someone."
That this type of study is virtually meaningless should come as no surprise. Without...Read More
Your large venue will most likely suffer from traffic problems of some sort on a regular basis. Anywhere a large parking lot holds hundreds or thousands of vehicles, it's inevitable that there will be accidents, stalls, bottlenecks and jams. One way many large venues help prevent this is by hiring a large number of staff to both help direct people in when parking, and lead them out to the highway safely after events. There are a number of concerns you should have about both driver and pedestrian safety surrounding large events, and some things you can do to help improve...Read More
Whether your hotel or resort offers valet parking or guests must park their own cars, speed display signs can help manage both traffic speed and flow on your property. This holds true both on ordinary days and days when special events may be held at your establishment. The signs can help whether incoming conferences and groups may arrive in airport vans, charter buses or individual vehicles. Using display signs to help get them to the right places at a safe speed can only help the overall perception of your property.
State, city and municipal governments are charged with keeping their roads maintained and policed. Part of that policing is enforcing posted traffic speeds and traffic laws. One of the best ways to discourage speeding and keep traffic moving at safer speeds is by using speed display signs, also known as driver feedback signs. These display drivers' speeds as they approach, and have a static speed limit sign posted with them so drivers can instantly compare their speed with the limit.
Not only do these signs reduce the number of drivers traveling over the speed limit,...Read More
Air traffic is obviously the top priority at airports, but ground traffic is important, too. Anyone who's ever tried to navigate an unfamiliar airport during a peak time understands the frustration of poorly marked areas, hard-to-see signs and the general confusion that can result from cars, shuttles and taxis that seem to disregard all the signs and make their own paths through the crowd. There are a number of ways to aid traffic moving through an airport, and controlling speed is a key to all of them.
The hallmark of...Read More
