Located at on the web. TraffiCalm Systems, a leader in the manufacture, sale, and world-wide distribution of radar-based electronic driver feedback signs, announced the upcoming launch of their new Slow Down Display Option for the DriveBrite™ line of electronic driver feedback systems.

Scheduled for release in mid December 2011, TraffiCalm Systems' Slow Down sign option will give TraffiCalm Distribution Partners the ability to offer important add-on functionality to previous end user sign sales and offer a complete traffic calming solution for new driver feedback sign opportunities.

"It’s a great add-on feature for customers who need to reduce traffic speeds in their area without a significant outlay of funds." said Jan DeSantis, Business Development Manager. "In addition, they enhance the strong reputation our DriveBrite™ driver feedback signs have for being one of the most effective, feature-rich, and affordable traffic calming solutions on the market!"

TraffiCalm Systems' new SLOW DOWN Display Option operates synchronously with their full line of DriveBrite™ Driver Feedback Display Signs. The signs offer flexibility with the "SLOW DOWN" message programmed to either flash or alternate with the emoticon "sad" face. There is also a non-flashing "sad or "smile" standalone emoticon option.

The units measure 30 inches by 20 inches with 5" amber Highway 5E LED characters, and feature high-visibility prismatic long life reflective sheeting on a static faceplate with flat black borders. Clients can choose white, fluorescent yellow green, fluorescent orange, or yellow faceplate colors depending on their specific application.

"We understand the challenges and needs of those seeking effective traffic calming solutions and feel that our comprehensive feature set and modular design make our DriveBrite™ signs a smart choice," added DeSantis. "Our goal is to offer Government & Law Enforcement, and those responsible for School Zone, Neighborhood & Pedestrian, or Work Zone safety an effective, proven, and affordable solution."
