For example, a motorcycle could easily handle a corner at a higher speed than a sports car which would be better than an SUV which would be better than a truck…!
Chris says the signs would allow the authorities to monitor the impact of approach speeds.
“The averages and 85th percentiles will all be calculated so further measures can be put in place if needed,” he says.
Our concern is that this could lead lower speed limits!
“We have been doing similar signage for various dangers, hazards and speed indication since 2002,” Chris says.
“I’m a biker myself and we have been supplying Isle of Man with some of our DayBright units for enhanced pedestrian crossings … I’m speaking to them to see if the crash site (sign) is something they could utilise as well.”
While the signs may be advisory now, we wonder how long before authorities use them to issue speeding tickets!
