Ped-Zone sign for speed reduction
The best traffic calming measure on residential collectors!
The in-street Ped-ZoneTM sign is the best traffic calming measure on residential collectors. It is a simple, effective and inexpensive way to reduce speed of vehicles by 5 to 20 km/h without slowing down emergency vehicles.
Because it narrows the street, it alters driver behaviour. This new road space perception incites drivers to slow down. And, contrary to the use of speed humps, the Ped-ZoneTMsign does not slow down emergency vehicles. It also incites drivers to adopt a driving style that is slow and constant. This driving style reduces noise, air pollution and energy consumption.
If struck by a vehicle, the Ped-ZoneTM sign folds upon impact then returns to its initial position. It’s designed to resist any impact, even when struck by a vehicle at over 80 km/h. Thanks to its rubber base, it can withstand the weight of heavy vehicles, even on direct wheel impact.
In short, here are the 6 benefits to the in-street Ped-ZoneTM sign compared to speed humps:
- It is inexpensive.
- It doesn’t slow down emergency vehicles.
- It reduces noise.
- It doesn’t create any vibrations.
- It reduces air pollution and energy consumption.
- It doesn’t hinder snow removal since signs are removed during winter.
