Solar School Crossing BlinkerSign® S1-1

Protecting children on route to school is a high priority. Across the country high speed roads surround schools making it increasingly important drivers are aware of pedestrian activity. BlinkerSign flashing LED signs boost awareness with bright flashing LEDs. Add the time clock controller option and signs can be programmed to flash a specified times, typically during morning student drop-offs, afternoon student pickups, and during special events. Running signs only when most necessary increases driver response (over 24 / 7 flashing systems) and the neighborhood residents will appreciate it.

School zone BlinkerSign systems can be activated by unlimited options using solar power and wireless technology offering a low cost, low labor option for customers. Federal funding is available if crossing is a school route location.

Great option for dangerous school routes or busy roundabouts.
