Road hazards come in many shapes and forms. Where we are driving makes a big difference to the types of road hazards that we can expect to see and also look to manage. We recognise that residential areas differ from rural areas, motorways differ to urban environments, however the one thing road hazards have in common is the risk to road users which can often be identified, warnings provided, and road safety improved.
We understand that no two-hazard warning or route safety schemes are going to be the same. But the need to reduce speed, make road users aware of upcoming dangers or to help them navigate through dangerous junctions or stretches of road remains central to the success of reducing the number of road accidents.
We have the in-house ability to create bespoke technology solutions that combine a range of detection, delineation, and signage products, both our own and those of third parties, to help our clients improve the safety of their networks for all road users.
You can find out more about the different safety solutions we provide in the sections below.
Too many people are killed or seriously injured on our roads every year – technology can help to protect & save lives.
Wrong Way Slip Detection
Vehicle Activated Dynamic Queue Warning
Speed Compliance Systems
Targeting the most dangerous parts of the network will yield the biggest improvement in making roads safer for users. Junctions are one such dangerous area and improvements in junction safety can result in a significant drop in accidents.
Congestion on motorway junctions and key exits of A-roads can cause delays and a build-up of traffic. This results in a hazard to the traffic approaching from behind and can generate major disruption at peak times.
Exceeding the speed limit is one of the most commonly cited factors when road accidents are reported. If you can increase speed compliance, it follows that you will improve safety for customers on your network.
Few scenarios on the road can be more dangerous than a driver travelling the wrong way down a slip road into oncoming traffic.
Clearview Intelligence provided vehicle count and classification with variable speed awareness and vehicle activated signs (VAS) across six locations on the A75 Stranraer to Gretna Green to encourage speed compliance and change driver behaviour.
Route safety scheme alerting oncoming traffic to vehicles turning ahead while also encouraging speed compliance on the A701
Following a number of accidents at the junction where the A76 and B744 meet, a vehicle detection system and vehicle activated signs were used to reduce speeding and increase safety at the junction.a
Clearview Intelligence worked alongside Kier and Carnell to design a long vehicle detection system that would operate across the junction and trigger the VAS further up the road.
Reducing accidents by combining traffic signals and Vehicle Activated Signs (VAS), while prioritising ambulances at Borders General Hospital.
Incident prevention through vehicle activated warning signs at the A702 bridge in Coulter.
An innovative solution that warns drivers if they drive the wrong way up a slip road, approaching on-coming traffic and creating a potentially dangerous situation
Providing variable warnings to drivers based on speed and gap measurement to reduce incidents on the A701 between Amisfield and M74.
