School Zone Flashing Beacons
Create safe and accessible school zone environments that encourage parents and students to walk and bike to school using school zone flashing beacons. Flashing yellow beacons are one of the most effective safety improvements a school can make, and can decrease vehicle speeds an average of five to seven miles per hour in school zones.*
Flashing beacons fit nicely into Safe Routes to School (SRTS) infrastructure funding models and some states offer grants specifically for the purchase of school zone flashing beacons.
In addition to improving safety and accessibility, solar beacons offer the added benefit of easy installation and no electrical grid connections, reducing installation and long-term operating costs.
