Across the country, students, teachers and administrators have said goodbye to summer and headed back to the classroom. At Traffic Safety Direct, we are also in “back-to-school” mode, working to meet the needs of educational institutions from preschool through college.

While we help schools stock the usual supplies like paint for athletic fields, parking signs, and snowplows and spreaders to keep the grounds clear, we have been busy creating plenty of custom signs and banners as well.

The trend towards being more environmentally friendly in terms of the products and services we use can be seen in the way towns, cities and local governments are using renewable energy to improve safety on our roads and highways.

Solar energy is becoming a popular option to power everything from traffic lights to stop signs, providing better overall visibility and saving money – and the planet – in the process.

Planning large-scale events can be quite a challenge. Organizers must manage an endless list of responsibilities and details to ensure that everything goes smoothly, from permitting, concessions and entertainment to recruiting volunteers, parking and attendee safety. The larger the event, the more important it is to ensure that crowd control measures are in place. The easier it is for pedestrians and vehicles to navigate in and out of the event, the less likely accidents are to occur.

Signed into law in 1990, The Americans with Disabilities Act was a major stepping-stone in ensuring equal rights for all Americans with disabilities. The act details guidelines for providing ease of access in public spaces to people with disabilities. Every aspect has been taken into consideration, from parking space sizes to accessibility routes to the design of handicap parking signs.

In 2008, the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) made a number of significant changes to the definition of “disability.” The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) issued new regulations under the ADA in 2010 that affect state and local governments as well as public accommodations and commercial facilities. Changes included the size, location and number of accessible parking spaces required in parking lots.

Thousands of pedestrians are killed in motor vehicle traffic accidents each year, and many thousands more are injured.

One development that has attracted interest is creating 3-D deterrents to speeding. Last fall, people around the world were fascinated by the 3-D illusion of a painted crosswalk in the small town of Ísafjörður in Iceland. The eye-catching pedestrian crossing, painted in an effort to get motorists to slow down on a narrow street, gives the effect of walking on air as pedestrians and bicyclists move from one side of the street to the other.

Summer is in full swing, bringing with it longer days, plenty of outdoor activities and more people hitting the roads and trails. With more than half of all Americans planning to take time off and over a third of families making vacation a priority, traffic, bicycle and pedestrian safety is more important ever.

Easy-to-read road signs, highly visible pedestrian crosswalks, and well-marked bike lanes are visible proof of the value of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. Known simply as the MUTCD, this manual has served as the definitive guide for creating safer, more efficient travel on our country’s highways and byways for over 80 years.
