Helping you Specify Vehicle Activated Speed (VAS) Signs
New Specifiers’ Infographic Guide Now Available

Vehicle Activated Speed Signs (commonly referred to as VAS Signs) are becoming increasingly popular on roads as a more ‘motorist-friendly’ advisory alternative to speed cameras that can reward good behaviour with positive messages. Proven to reduce vehicle speeds by up to 15% and accidents on the road by up to 30% VAS signs are also an effective replacement for speed bumps, which may be unsuitable in certain circumstances, for example, along bus and emergency access routes, and which have recently been cited as a potential source of increased pollution, contributing to poor air quality.

Low-cost, easy to install and with no maintenance required, VAS Signs are increasingly being used by local authorities, with their programmability offering a customisable solution to address local traffic issues, while enabling safer road-sharing by pedestrians and drivers.

With a range of signage solutions available in different sizes and types, deciding which best fits your needs can seem daunting. To assist specifiers, Messagemaker have put together a handy-to-use download which offers a definitive guide to VAS Signs, their uses and their benefits in one easy to understand infographic.

Whether it’s learning about the different types, the recommended sizes, or what power supply options they use, this infographic will answer your questions and help you make an informed choice that delivers an effective solution.
