Improve stop, warning, and new sign compliance with LED signs and flashers. 24-hour flashing beacons heighten the visibility of signs, improving driver awareness and safety for all road users. They have been proven to reduce crash rates at stop-controlled intersections. LED flashing signs are also an effective solution. Used in place of existing signage, their illuminated borders increase visibility in challenging conditions.
Stop sign blow-throughs?
Use 24-hour flashing beacons or LED flashing signs to more than double the stop rate at unsignalized intersections.
What types of signs use 24-hour beacons or can be enhanced with LEDs?
The applications are endless. Add beacons in addition to existing signage or on the approach to existing signage; use LED flashing and lighted signs to replace existing static signs.
Stop signs, including 4-way, 2-way, or T-intersections, and approaches to these intersections
Yield signs, including at approaches to intersections or roundabouts, or at highway on-ramps or off-ramps
Curve Ahead signs or other indicators of sharp turns or blind corners
Wrong Waysigns on access ramps or divided highways
Combine with other Carmanah solutions
Some projects may require multiple products. Combine 24-hour flashing beacons and signs with other traffic safety products for complete solutions.
Radar signs can help drivers self-correct their speed before they reach the flashing beacon/sign.
Eliminating traffic deaths starts with small steps
Vision Zero: what began in Sweden is now a global movement toward safer streets where no loss of life is considered acceptable. The Vision Zero initiative encourages cities to pledge to eliminate death and serious injury from their roads: Boston, Vancouver, Los Angeles, and Orlando are some of the many cities that have initiatives in place. Transportation engineers, government officials, and safety advocates all play vital roles in meeting their city’s Vision Zero initiatives. A great place to start? Consider enhancing high-risk locations or those with previous incidents with flashing beacons or LED enhanced signs to help bring those traffic deaths to zero.
