Part 4 of the 21st Century Traffic Calming Guide provides updates that include modern-day solutions to slowing speeding drivers
ALPHARETTA, Ga., Feb. 06, 2015—The final installment to the four-part 21st Century Traffic Calming Guide from Radarsign® provides a detailed look at today’s digital, electronic and interactive technologies that are being used to slow speeding drivers. This fourth part in the series from the manufacturer of the world’s first armored driver feedback sign focuses on camera and pedestrian-activated technologies, beacon systems and driver feedback signs. Like the first three installments, this edition also addresses design considerations, costs, pros, cons and more.
As a leader in the charge to make streets safer for drivers and pedestrians, Radarsign has developed a series of 21st Century Traffic Calming Guides that provide the latest insights about a wide range of traffic calming solutions.
“We embarked on this project because the most influential reference documents for traffic calming have remained virtually unchanged for decades,” said Charlie Robeson, Radarsign Co-Founder and Managing Partner. “Our goal was to prepare a single, go-to document that can serve as a reference source for people who can’t invest hours and hours 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.”
Part I: Vertical Alterations was released November 11.
Part II: Horizontal Alterations was released November 21.
Part III: Narrowing Measures was release December 16.
UPDATE: A comprehensive, single reference document that includes Parts I, II, III and IV is now available for download at https://www.radarsign.com/a-traffic-calming-guide-for-the-21st-century/.
