Downloadable Best Practices + Step-by-Step Evaluation Checklist Make it Easier to Slow Speeding Drivers
ALPHARETTA, Ga., Dec., 16, 2013—Implementing a comprehensive school zone traffic calming plan in 2014 just got whole a lot easier with the release of the “Best Practices in School Zone Traffic Calming” guide from Radarsign®, America’s School Zone Safety Partner. Until now, a universal planning guide focused exclusively on issues related to traffic calming has not been readily available.
The guide provides best practices, MUTCD guidelines (when appropriate), case studies and a step-by-step evaluation checklist to equip community leaders and traffic management professionals with information they need to plan and implement an effective school zone traffic calming plan.
“Until now, there hasn’t been an actionable list of tried and true best practices for slowing speeding drivers in school zones available,” said Charlie Robeson, Radarsign Co-Founder and Managing Partner. “The ‘Best Practices in School Zone Traffic Calming’ planning guide is easy to download and it shortens the ramp-up time between talking about ideas and implementing solutions.”
Driver feedback signs from Radarsign™—the manufacturer of the world’s first armored driver feedback sign—are scientifically proven to slow speeding drivers in school zones, a top “autopilot journey” destination. Autopilot drivers often break the speed limit, brake too late or don’t stop at pedestrian crossings. Strategically placed driver feedback signs can serve as triggers—stimulating drivers to transition from autopilot to attentive.
In 2004, Atlanta-based Radarsign™ established new industry standards for traffic-calming solutions with the debut of the world’s first armored radar speed signs, which are vandal, weather and bullet-resistant. The industry’s most durable radar speed signs are also the most ecological and energy efficient. Engineered and manufactured in the USA, Radarsign products are MUTCD-compliant and utilize recycled aluminum, innovative LED reflector technology, minimal battery power and solar panels to deliver bright, easy-to-read feedback to drivers. Radarsign products are scientifically proven to reduce drivers’ speeds and have been entrusted to provide safe and effective traffic-calming solutions for: municipalities, treasured national parks, schools, neighborhoods, military bases, and private and public development projects across the U.S., Canada and overseas. www.Radarsign.com.
