Speed reduction & Traffic Calming
In 2013 the Canadian Press reported the following : there were twice as many vehicles on the road than in 1973, however there are 4 ½ less fatal accidents; several reasons came to light to explain this statistic : the combined effects of better performing vehicles with the extensive use of Road safety campaigns have resulted in fewer accidents and with less severity, and the trend does not seem to slow down. One of the best tools that is available to the authorities is to use a safety campaign targeted to the proper audience, motorists speeding that need to slow down in critical areas, and also to provide a à better behaviour on the roadway. Strategic areas targeted for the use of driver feedback signs are school zones, entering a city, parks, play grounds and downtown areas.
The speed display signs from Trafic-Innovation meet very specific areas of concern for city authorities. The following is a list of tools that we have available for the target applications.
