Of all road scenarios, School Zones are required to ensure the safety of children. While class is in session, drivers are responsible for maintaining safety and awareness on the streets surrounding schools.
Keeping children safe at school is one of the highest concerns we have as parents, teachers, administrators, and as an industry. With proper planning and implementation, technology can be used that puts children’s safety at the forefront of driving through a school zone. TraffiCalm’s School Zone makes a safe route to and from school, every day.
TraffiCalm proposes three solutions designed to ensure every trip to school is safe
Let us help design your TraffiCalm School Zone
TraffiCalm™ Flashing Sign Systems provide an unprecedented approach to slowing speeding drivers. The controller receives input from a user-generated schedule, an optional radar, or a combination of both to provide active LED flashing of the existing regulatory speed sign. The Basic Controller provides exceptional variability of blinking patterns and speed threshold settings, all from any smartphone, tablet, or PC.
Driver Feedback Signs have proven over and again that speeding violations can be reduced with non-invasive technology. Schools are the perfect match for what Driver Feedback can accomplish; improve compliance among otherwise reasonable drivers.
TraffiCalm™ Driver Feedback Signs come in many sizes and feature sets, all providing the most reliable, most rugged, most trusted solution in the market.
Pair any of our Driver Feedback Signs with the perfect TraffiCalm™ power supply (Solar, battery, or AC) and you have the quickest path to slowing drivers down, day in and day out.
Improving on the industry standard, Push2Cross takes pedestrian activated signage one step further. Combining the proven effectiveness of the RRFB (rectangular rapid flashing beacon) and SignAlert™ enhancements produces a solution that is easy to implement and highly effective.
Our in-house RRFB is the most rugged design in existence, no other system can boast our reliability. Whether arctic cold or egg frying hot, run over by a truck or left in a swimming pool, the TraffiCalm™ RRFB won’t quit.
The core of the system, SignAlert™, does what it does best, intuitive configuration and flexibility precipitate value that has to be experienced to be believed.
