Military Traffic Calming

Military and air force bases often use traffic calming to ensure healthy flow of traffic and to protect military professionals and their families. Traffic Logix solutions have been installed in tens of military, air force, and navy bases both in the US and abroad. The solutions most purchased by military bases are our rubber speed humps, rubber speed tables, and SafePace 100 low-cost speed signs.

Our rubber speed humps are often used to enhance gate security at military bases, compelling drivers to slow down as they drive over the humps toward the entrance gate. The flat-topped speed tables are a popular choice for military traffic calming on base roads. The rubber speed tables slow vehicles less aggressively than speed humps or bumps, allowing traffic to continue to flow at 20-30 mph. Traffic Logix rubber speed humps and speed tables are both GSA approved and can be purchased by military bases at discounted GSA rates.

The bestselling SafePace 100 speed sign is also a popular choice on military and air force bases due to its low cost and  portability. The compact speed sign displays vehicle speed in brightly lid LEDs, reminding drivers to stay alert and slow down. A user-friendly software interface lets you program the sign including choosing at what speed the sign digits or built in strobe light should flash to warn drivers.The lightweight speed sign is energy efficient and offers optional battery power that allows the sign to function autonomously for 2-4 weeks.Universal mounting brackets can be installed on several poles, allowing you to rotate the sign for use at multiple locations.

Traffic Logix also offers flashing beacons and school zone flashing signs that can be used to protect children at military base schools. The beacons and signs can be programmed to operate only during school hours and include 365 day scheduling so you can specify when and how they operate. Flashing beacons and school zone signs have been shown to significantly decrease traffic around schools, protecting children as they arrive and depart from schools.

Traffic safety is a growing concern on military roads. Military traffic calming can help make your base a safer place.
