The FAST-18T trailer helps keep roadways safe, especially where posted speed limits exceed 45mph. With 18” characters, speeding drivers will be able to read the sign with ease. This trailer stands at over eight feet tall, making it the movable option for highway and county roadway systems. Even with its size, the FAST-18T is still easy to move, allowing for multiple location uses.

Standard features include high & low-speed blanking, flashing digit violator alert, and traffic management arrows. Optional features on our speed signs include our violator alert system (a flashing strip of red and blue LED’s and/or the distinct “SLOW DOWN” message in red LED’s) when approaching vehicles do not slow to the selected speed. Also available is our Adaptive Data Acquisition Package, which records the time, date, and speed of oncoming vehicles without the use of cumbersome pneumatic tubes placed across the street!
