Flashing School Zone Safety Systems

Radarsign School Zone SystemsRadarsign Universal school zone traffic calming guide Radarsign offers two types of flashing school zone safety systems:

  1. Flashing School Zone Safety System which includes a radar speed sign and flashing beacons
  2. Flashing Beacon Safety System which includes stand-alone beacons only

Flashing School Zone Safety System

The Flashing School Zone Safety System, which includes a radar speed sign and flashing beacons, is more effective than stand-alone flashing beacons because of the physiological response of drivers to the radar speed sign displaying their actual speed. Because the sign flashes the driver’s speed as they approach it, the driver is forced into an active state of awareness of how fast they are driving, resulting in increased speed limit compliance.
