If your work environment is one in which traffic or equipment speeds are an issue, you might have already mentioned this concern to management or other employees. Some examples of places in which speed control can be an important issue are places like construction sites, industrial parks, mining operations, bus depots, business and corporate campuses, warehouses and other sites where vehicles come in and out regularly. Road construction workers are often, and rightfully, worried about passing traffic speeds.
The economy doesn't just affect individuals and families. Some states across the country have been having trouble paying their debts for a while now. Illinois owed millions to school districts just a few years ago, a debt that stretched into two school years. Those overdue payments caused the temporary cutting of programs and teacher layoffs. Cities and towns feel the crunch, too. So when it's time for traffic calming measures to be put into place, money can be a big concern.
City officials, when faced with a traffic situation that needs to be corrected, have many...Read More
Industrial areas, warehouses, mining operations and other work sites are often hazardous for workers. The presence of heavy equipment, heavy building materials, pits, flammable substances and other elements create hazards that most of us don't face everyday. Throw the possibility of collisions into the mix, and the danger rises. Preventing accidents, from forklift accidents to truck and heavy equipment collisions, is a priority. Driver feedback signs and variable speed signs from TraffiCalm can help.
When many people think of the need...Read More
Speed signs are an important tool to use in work zones. In fact, the signs leading up to the actual work areas may be more important than anything that goes in the zone itself, according to many studies. Getting drivers to slow before they reach the part of the construction where workers and equipment are most present is a factor in slower traffic throughout the zone and improved safety.

Anywhere vehicles and pedestrians share the same space, the potential for devastating accidents is there. Managing the speed of traffic through traffic calming measures like MUTCD traffic signs is an important step in improving safety. Because one size doesn't fit all in many places like school zones, work zones, mining and industrial sites and other stretches of road, variable speed signs can be an important tool in managing traffic flow and improving safety.
A school zone is a very clear example of a multi-purpose area. When...Read More
A feedback sign has many advantages over a static speed limit sign. And when you purchase the sign through ISO9001 manufacturer TraffiCalm Systems, you get even more advantages.
First, a feedback sign displays the speed limit on an easily recognizable MUTCD traffic sign. The size, shape and color draw drivers' eyes, and they recognize it as a "real" traffic sign. The radar speed sign above it detects the speed of oncoming vehicles and shows each driver's speed in a bright, LED display.
Studies have shown that this type of feedback gets drivers' attention and causes...Read More
The use of industrial speed signs in and around mining areas can help slow traffic down and make the area safer. Mining sites are dangerous places, especially for people who aren't that familiar with the flow of work and how things operate. When laymen think of the dangers in mining, they think of things like collapses, cave-ins, explosions and the other very rare occurrences that make the news. But one of the biggest dangers at mining sites are the large pieces of equipment and the blind spots they create where smaller vehicles can be put at risk.
Because mines require...Read More
