School Zone Flashing Beacon Supports Multiple Options for SRTS Projects
Improve walkability, even in challenging locations. Add this self-contained, 30-watt flashing beacon to existing school speed limit signage: school maintenance crews can complete the installation quickly and easily. Using Carmanah calendar software, these beacons can be preprogrammed with up to 500 days of operating hours customized to an individual school zone. With its larger solar engine, this system can also support higher intensity LEDs, remote monitoring, and third-party devices. Solar-powered beacons minimize both installation and long-term operating costs, while remote programming decreases on-site maintenance requirements. It’s also built to last: durable and dependable, this product comes with a 5-year warranty for peace of mind.
School zone flashing beacons fit within Safe Routes to School infrastructure funding models, complete streets plans, and state-specific grants for school zone safety improvements.
STUDIES SHOW: Flashing school zone beacons can reduce speeds in school zones by 5–7 miles per hour, according to a study from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission. Increasing safety can help encourage students and parents to walk and bike to school.
