Smart Work Zones and Technology

At Give ‘Em A Brake Safety we stride to offer the very latest and greatest technology to enhance safety and mobility in and around work zones.
Connected arrow boards to monitor the status of the board, and connecting to various navigation applications to provide motorist up to date information about work zones.
This system will alert drivers of an upcoming traffic slow down or stopped traffic and inform them to use both lanes until designated merge point. The system should reduce the length of the upstream queue by 40% which may reduce conflicts at nearby intersections. Therefore, by utilizing both traffic lanes, the differential speed between lanes is significantly decreased since both lanes travel at approximately the same speed. Drivers receive positive directions on lane usage and merging, which clears disagreements between drivers and reduces road rage.
Alerts drivers in real time to slow moving construction vehicles entering and exiting the highway. This system detects slow moving construction traffic and sends an advanced warning to drivers by activating flashing lights on a static sign so motorists have time to switch lanes and allow for construction vehicles to merge safely.
When properly designed and deployed for a specific Project, a VSL system will advise drivers of an appropriate vehicle speed to allow them to travel through the work zone with minimal braking. The system determines the average speed of downstream traffic and advises upstream traffic of an optimum speed to approach the queue.
