20mph When Lights Flash Signs in Cumbria

20mph flashing lights sign

Creating 20mph zones around school zones using a temporary "When Lights Flash" sign is a clever method of reducing vehicle speeds around schools without affecting traffic at other times of the day.

Research indicates that 20mph zones reduce vehicle speeds by 9mph on average and reduce accident rates by up to 60%.

School Patrol Signal Programming with Windows 7.

Microtima software version 2.4.0 for school patrol signal programming was designed for Windows XP. The software works in the same way in Windows 7.

Vehicle Activated Signs at the Port of Tyne

Vehicle Activated Signs at the Port of Tyne

The Port of Tyne stretches over 600 acres on both sides of the river Tyne, with over 60 businesses and 450 people based on the site. In 2012, the port is expected to handle over 3 million tonnes of bulk cargo, 30,000 cars and 35 cruise liners.

Handling such volumes dictates that road safety on the port’s internal road network is an important consideration. Sheriff Technologies installed solar powered vehicle activated signs to provide a speed limit reminder to drivers and improve road safety at two key positions.
