Safe Routes To School
Our 224-6LW Flare-Lite and Traffix Devices' "Step-n-Lock" vertical panel with school pedestrian sign bring more awareness to the School Zone Crosswalk. This system helps to address the safety concerns of parents, "who consistently cite traffic danger as a reason why their children are unable to bicycle or walk to school" (see FHWA web site on SAFETEA-LU and funding available for The Safe Routes To School Program at http://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/saferoutes/index.htm ).The Flare-Lite is similar to our other models except that it is a lightweight crashworthy device using 4 D-Cell batteries. It is a light that is highly visible (over 1000 feet in daylight), rugged, safe, cost effective and energy efficient.
