Applications of Traffic Calming Signs
The radar speed signs have huge applications. They are key to controlling traffic and avoiding accidents. Sometimes, the driver of a vehicle is unaware of the speed at which they are moving. In areas like school or hospitals, where people might not be extra cautious with the traffic, this can lead to serious accidents. Also on highways, uncontrolled driving and over-speeding can cause serious accidents. All these can be avoided with the use of Traffic Calming Signs. If the driver is aware of what speed they are travelling at, they would regulate their speed accordingly and drive safer avoiding accidents.
While driving on regular routes, people are often unaware of what exactly they are doing and work mechanically. To put it in other words, drivers while on regular routes do not worry much about their speed or about pedestrian crossings and schools on the way because they are used to the route. Radar Signs work as a trigger to make the drivers more aware of what they are doing. Through detailed study and analysis it has been figured out that if you give the driver a trigger and then a hint of what should actually be done, it can help. So a Speed Feedback Sign showing you there is a school ahead and you are over-speeding will actually make you go slower.
