All Traffic Solutions Launches Radar Speed Displays with Audible Alerts
SmartZone for Schools is a radar speed display with audible alerts that sound when a vehicle is traveling over the speed limit when passing the sign.
All Traffic Solutions, the innovation leader in cloud-based traffic management solutions for law enforcement, intelligent transportation and smart cities announces the launch of SmartZone for Schools, the first and only radar speed displays with audible alerts that sound when a vehicle traveling over a preprogrammed speed threshold limit passes the sign.
Designed specifically for school zones, SmartZone for Schools gives child pedestrians and bike riders the precious seconds they need to get to safety.
The Audible Alerts and flashing beacons grab the attention of speeding drivers so they can immediately slow down before tragedy strikes. These web-enabled speed signs make it easier for school districts, municipalities and law enforcement to optimize safety and protect students in school zones.
“About 78 percent of drivers speed in school zones, and one in ten are distracted by mobile devices and other unsafe driving behaviors. Add to that the number of students busy talking or texting and it’s no wonder that thousands of students are injured or worse each year,” says All Traffic Solutions CEO Jim Weaver. “Our goal is to lower the incidence of school zone injuries one municipality at a time by giving schools and law enforcement effective, easy-to-use traffic calming devices to keep kids safe.”
Some other features include:
- Remote Access: From one central interface means no more driving to every sign in every neighborhood in the district to set timers and speed limits.
- Set Schedules: For school days and hours, revise in minutes for holidays, vacations and unexpected school closings.
- Set Speed Limits: For when school is in session and during the hours before and after when students are walking, being dropped off or picked up.
- Gather Meaningful Data: For immediate insight into speed and volume trends to identify which areas require additional safety measures and provide meaningful statistics for effective planning. Grant funding for school zone traffic programs is easier to attain when supported by hard data that confirms need and proves success.
