Incorporating the ingenious technology from our radar driver feedback sign TraffiCalm’s variable speed sign is the perfect solution for improving work zone safety, easier traffic data collection, and much more.
Designed specifically to alert drivers of reduced speeds in higher-risk areas, such as speed transition zones, work zones, and dangerous curves, variable speed signs are effective, affordable, and available for both urban and highway use.
Unlike our driver feedback signs, variable speed limit (VSL) signs display the speed limit instead of the driver’s current speed. But they offer the same bright, eye-catching sign face, speed violation alert options (flashing numerals, strobe light), data collection technology, and easy programmability. TraffiCalm’s intelligent variable speed signs are effective, affordable alternatives to the traditional, static speed limit sign.
With the built in electronics and existing firmware, the VSL sign can be configured to display the speed limit only when traffic is present, saving considerable power, ideal for solar powered signs. The displayed speed limit can be programmed to change based upon an internally programmed schedule or through the convenient Bluetooth connection. This feature is ideal for school zones, work zones, and many more applications.
Variable speed signs are effective at lowering speed limits for during traffic congestion, roadway or roadside construction, and adverse weather conditions. Posted at bridges, dangerous roadway curves, roadways with frequent heavy congestion, and work zone sites, VSL signs - programmable via Bluetooth or set to an internal schedule - maintain regular traffic flow and encourage decreased speeds.
For roadside construction workers, the difference between 30 mph and 40 mph is life and death. Considering that highway speed limits are typically 50+ mph in the US, decreasing speed limits to increase work zone safety is vital.
For every 10 pedestrians or roadway construction workers struck at 40 mph, 9 will be killed. However, if the car is traveling at 30 mph, then 5 out of every 10 struck pedestrians and workers will survive. With a slight reduction of speed, chances of survival go from just 10% to 50%.
Our products are designed to keep drivers and pedestrians safe. They’re also designed to make purchasing, installation, and maintenance easy and affordable.
Rely on the handy Bluetooth connection to set the display speed, or set the sign to a fixed schedule. When workers are present, alert drivers of the reduced speeds. When traffic is low, shut the sign off to conserve energy. Whatever your needs, TraffiCalm Systems will deliver.
