The Benefits of Using A Flexible Delineator

When people think of traffic devices, the images of a traffic cone or barricade come to mind. But what about a flexible delineator?

The Importance of Traffic Signs In A Construction Site

It can be nerve-raking for both drivers and construction workers when a car (or many cars) approaches a construction zone on a road or highway. Sometimes, cars and other vehicles are mere inches away from workers or uneven payment. These construction zones are hazards and can put everyone at risk at possibly being injured. All construction zones are different with an array of equipment and precautions (traffic signs, flashing lights) to alert people, and unfortunately, not all drivers abide by the rules. Despite the fact that traffic fines are doubled for violations in work zones, people still speed or weave [...]

Ticketed for parking in a no parking zone?

If you are the owner of an establishment or property that has no parking zones, reserved parking spots or handicapped parking spaces you know that not everyone abides by the rules, marked or not. Areas designated are done so for a reason. Handicapped parking spots are closer to the entrances as customers with disabilities may have a difficult time walking. No parking zones often are loading and unloading areas needed to make the business operational, and reserved spots are there for owners and others that need to be there for daily operations. Sooner or later proprietors end up using a [...]

Staying Safe During a Breakdown

If you have ever had your car breakdown on the side of a road you know it is a frustrating situation. If it happens on a major road or busy highway the situation becomes even worse. Frustrating can merge into downright dangerous. Your car or truck may be impeding the flow of traffic and be in danger of being hit, even if pulled off to the edge of the road, if dark outside visibility is limited and flashing hazard lights often cannot be seen until you are right up on the vehicle.
