West Palm Beach, FL, March 17, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- SIGNARAMA can assist in assessment and updates of signage.
Time is running out to assess your property’s traffic signage and devise a replacement plan in order to comply with new traffic sign standards geared around reflectivity. Less than a year remains before new reflectivity regulations go into effect.
SIGNARAMA store employees throughout the U.S. are well versed on the latest reflectivity rules and regulations for signage and can provide you with assistance.
The new regulations were created in early 2008 by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to improve safety on the nation’s roadways. A four-year grace period was granted for property managers and owners to get in line with these new regulations. The push is largely due to an ever-changing driving environment caused by an increase in aging drivers, altered headlamp performance and varied vehicle sizes.
The new regulations will affect traffic signage utilized for paved areas including roads open to the public, private roads and parking lots for shopping malls and restaurants, office complexes, apartment and residential developments, sports and recreational facilities and other businesses open to the public.
Improving the reflectivity of traffic signage is important to the safety of drivers. Studies show that highly reflective signage significantly reduces the number of injury collisions.
