LED Enhanced Signs for School ZonesCalm traffic in one of the most dangerous places for pedestrians: school zones.
LED Enhanced Signs for School Zones
School zones are supposed to keep kids safe as they travel to and from school, but they unfortunately remain a dangerous place for pedestrians of all ages. More than 100 people are killed in school zones in the U.S. each year.
The good news is there are effective, low-cost solutions cities can use to reduce fatalities and increase safety in school zones, including LED enhanced signs that flash to draw attention to school zone speed limit signs, crosswalk warnings, and more
Featuring the same high-intensity LEDs as our best-selling rectangular rapid-flashing beacons (RRFBs), Carmanah’s latest MX Series LED enhanced signs provide an effective, long-lasting school zone solution, with the added benefit of remote connectivity and alerts.

Making sure that drivers see, acknowledge, and obey school zone signs is vital to protecting young people making their way to and from school, no matter what mode of transportation they are using.
Our school zone safety series explores several solutions to help vehicle drivers reduce speed, pay attention to signs, and become more compliant in school zones.
