What Options are There for Traffic Calming?
The use of speed bumps or removable speed bumps is an effective measure to respond to speeders and high speeds. A speed threshold can also reduce the risk of accidents in the evening or at night. In poor light and visibility conditions, the integrated reflectors remind you of the speed limit. A rail system ensures sufficient stability to guarantee long-term use. Interlocking teeth firmly connect individual elements of the threshold. This leads to extended shelf life and operational readiness. Early identification prevents damage when crossing the speed limit thresholds.
Traffic sign permissible top speed 10km/h2. In addition to the thresholds, clear signage can ensure the necessary safety on the company premises. When driving on the site, the speed limit should be set up so that it is visible to inform each vehicle of the maximum speed. Traffic signs such as the 10, 20, or 30 zones usually make drivers aware that they suspect a nearby danger zone.
Parking lot marking as road marking: maximum permitted speed 10 km / h3. In addition to the signage, a parking space marking can be considered. These take up a large visible area on the floor and attract significantly more attention than traffic signs. A pictogram is particularly useful in a 10-speed zone if the existing signs are overlooked as part of traffic calming. If pictograms appear on the entire site, the driver is repeatedly reminded of the maximum speed.
What to Consider When Choosing the Suitable Threshold
- Speed reduction / recommended speed
- Traffic density
- Normal passenger traffic or frequent heavy goods traffic
- What role does the height of the threshold play?
- The following applies high crossing speed – low threshold, low crossing speed – high threshold.
- Depending on the design and height of the speed bumps, a speed reduction to 10, 20, 30, or 50 km / h is forced.
