Save Lives with ADVANCE HAZARD WARNING
It’s a Win-Win, VATCS do reduce fatalities and will benefit economy
When used downstream from fixed plate warning signs on curve locations with an accident history, VATCS have been independently proven to reduce speeds and accidents for the long term.
Ohio is the latest state to trial the technology, see two of the installations pictured south of Columbus in Franklin County.
VATCS is the only traffic calming display technology approach that has been independently large scale field tested to prove long term effectiveness with driver respect of the technology being maintained over a 3 year period with the TRL548 report (hyperlink TRL548 to research page on site) being the only internationally recognized study of its kind.
If we extrapolate these results in the USA today:
The current economic cost to society of speeding related crashes is estimated by the NHTSA to be $28 billion per year and on average 42,000+ fatalities occur per annum.
59% of traffic fatalities in the USA can be attributed to road departure incidents, a large proportion of these being inappropriate speed at curves.
By taking the 1/3rd reduction in the level of speed related accidents from TRL548 over a 3 year period. Deployment of VATCS in tandem with other reasonable traffic safety measures in your state could potentially have the effect of a 33% reduction in road fatalities which would equate to a $9 billion dollar saving per annum to the USA economy.
