At Roadside Technologies Ltd we offer a range of products for either hire or sale to aid and assist community speed watch groups in reducing vehicle speeds in residential areas. By installing a pole mounted Vehicle Activated Sign (VAS) or Speed Indication Sign (SID), it has a proven positive effect on slowing traffic down entering entrances to villages. All items are simple to use and can allow users with no previous experience equipment to monitor, measure and enforce any speed limit using similar products to what the police and councils use. We have worked with numerous CSW groups across the UK to provide traffic surveys to highlight areas of concern. Data captured in an industry standard format can then be passed on to Local Authorities for action. Take a look at our most popular options below which are all available for either hire or sale.
