Slowing Traffic With Traffic Logix Speed Tables

LYNN HAVEN, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 21, 2007 --Residents of the city of Lynn Haven, Florida were unhappy with the vehicles speeding by their houses. Concerned for the safety of their young children, numerous residents began to petition the city to take action. In response to complaints, the city conducted a traffic study to determine the speed of passing vehicles and found that motorists were passing at 10-15 miles faster than the posted speed limits.

A commission meeting was held to discuss possible solutions to calm traffic on local roads. The city wanted a product that would effectively slow cars to the local speed limit of 35 mph without slowing them more aggressively. The plan was to purchase a solution that could be installed on local streets to study the effect on motorist behavior. Nearby Panama City had several rubber speed tables from Traffic Logix and Lynn Haven decided to purchase the Traffic Logix solutions as well.

Now, when residents complain about speeding problems, the city installs a speed trailer or traffic counters to decide whether traffic calming is warranted. When a street is approved, a Traffic Logix speed table is installed to test the street. It is kept down for 90 days before the results are assessed and residents choose whether or not to put a speed table in permanently. The advantage of the rubber speed table is that it can be installed permanently or easily removed by a few people in half a day.

Lynn Haven's public works department reported that the Traffic Logix speed table has been easy to assemble and disassemble and is effective in slowing down vehicle speeds. Residents have been pleased with the reduction of speed and volume on their streets with the use of the speed tables.

Lynn Haven is looking forward to expanding the traffic calming program in the future to purchase additional Traffic Logix speed tables and humps to test several roads simultaneously.

Traffic Logix traffic calming solutions can be used as permanent or portable devices.

Other Florida communities that have purchased Traffic Logix products include Coral Springs, Fort Myers, Oakland Park, Oviedo, Panama City, Sarasota, and West Palm Beach.
