Emergency Vehicle Egress Warning System

From products shots to real life on location examples.

School Zone Solutions

Safety issue:

A pedestrian hit by a vehicle moving at 40 MPH (64.4 km/h) has only a 15% chance of survival. Reducing speed to 20 MPH (32.2 km/h) gives an 95% chance of surviving[1]. Slowing down traffic in school zones is imperative to our children, reducing injuries & fatalities.

TAPCO solution:

TAPCO is committed to making walking & bicycling to school safer, providing solutions that boldly alert drivers to the presence of schoolchildren, crossing guards and other pedestrians in school zones. While TAPCO manufactures a complete array of standard traffic signs for school zones, we also offer several earth-friendly technologies for making school zones safer.

Crossing guards across the country carry BlinkerPaddle® flashing LED Paddles in their crosswalks to alert motorists. BlinkerSign® flashing LED School Crossing Signs are used in advance of, and at marked school crossings to alert drivers of the presence of pedestrians. Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacons (RRFB) dramatically increase driver compliance in yielding to pedestrians at high-risk uncontrolled crossings.
