Stop Ahead LED BlinkerSign® (W3-1)

A STOP AHEAD BlinkerSign® provides a high-visibility advance warning to drivers approaching a stop intersection. They are ideal for intersections that are poorly lit, those with visibility challenges including horizontal and vertical curves or at crossings where high-speed major highways intersect lower-speed secondary roads. They enhance safety by warning drivers well in advance of stop intersections, allowing a gradually reduction in speed for safer stopping.

If you want to draw attention to a new stop intersection, it can be easily relocated and replaced with a standard sign after drivers have become accustomed to the new condition.


BlinkerSign® flashing LED signs are highly visible, day and night,
and especially during adverse weather conditions

Features & Advantages

  • BlinkerSign® Stop Ahead signs provide greater visibility for new, high-risk and high-incidence intersections where static signs are ineffective.
  • BlinkerSign® LED signs are typically solarpowered so they can be easily deployed in any location with adequate sunlight.
  • They can be programmed to flash 24 / 7, dusk-to-dawn or during any desired intervals.
  • BlinkerSign® LED signs can be wirelessly linked to other ITS devices including radar/vehicle detectors. These detectors can pick up vehicles exceeding the set speed threshold from up to 300 ft, triggering a BlinkerSign®to flash for a set amount of time.
  • TAPCO's BlinkerBeam® wireless communication eliminates the need for trenching, installing wiring and makes it possible to install the system in virtually any location, requiring little time and effort.

Further enhance with a flashing LED STOP Sign

BlinkerStop® LED STOP signs provide greater visibility for new, high-risk and high-incidence intersections where static signs are ineffective.
