High Water Warning System

Inclement weather and disasters often leave little time to properly warn drivers of the proper routes to shelters or safety. These weather conditions often obscure visibility of standard signs. BlinkerSign® LED-enhanced solar traffic signs provide notification and awareness of closed roads, evacuation routes or dangerous driving conditions. The advanced warning allows drivers to turn around and take alternate routes preventing backups. Each MUTCD compliant BlinkerSign® is built to weather harsh conditions and emergency scenarios.
