New 43-page document reveals updates related to cost and usage for vertical and horizontal alterations, narrowing measures PLUS digital, electronic and interactive technologies—a modern traffic-calming segment that has been virtually ignored as an industry best practice.
ALPHARETTA, Georgia., June 30, 2015—While technology has advanced almost every industry on the planet, guidelines for transportation and traffic calming have remained unchanged for decades. Modern digital advancements, trends and emerging best practices have been virtually ignored. The release of the comprehensive 43-page “Traffic Calming Guide for the 21st Century“ from Radarsign® changes that.
Today traffic planners and engineers, urban planners, municipalities and law enforcement officials have easy access to an unbiased, up-to-date resource for traffic calming solutions. With the new traffic calming guide, those responsible for making streets safer can better navigate the often confusing maze of traditional and interactive options now available to slow speeding drivers.
Radarsign is the manufacturer of the world’s first armored driver feedback signs which are scientifically proven to slow speeding drivers. Radar speed signs and other electronic and interactive technologies have never before been included as part of any industry-wide best practices guide.
“Cities, municipalities, businesses, HOAs and Law enforcement officials have been embracing a wide variety of digital and interactive technologies for traffic calming for more than two decades,” says Charlie Robeson, Radarsign Co-Founder and Managing Partner. “But they often run into hurdles because these options have not yet been documented in context with other engineered methods.”
The Traffic Calming Guide for the 21st Century serves as an unbiased, single-source document that can serve as a reference source for people who can’t invest days into online research. This will help law enforcement departments, government organizations, traffic planners and engineers and more to make informed decisions on up-to-date information.
Though portions of the document have been released in segments over the past six months, the final, comprehensive document includes important information about school zone traffic calming signage, pavement markings and education, which can be a critical component to success.
