Does Your Pedestrian Crossing Sign Meet Safety Regulations?

Many of the free-standing Pedestrian Crossing signs you'll find online advertise special features, such as standing signs that pop out upon impact, lightweight materials, or diamond-grade reflective sheeting. But many of these perks actually violate safety requirements for pedestrian crossings. Our products are GUARANTEED to comply with all of the latest safety standards--we refuse to compromise safety for a convenient sales pitch. See how competitors fall short of regulation compliance:
  • A pedestrian crossing sign is required to bend over and bounce back upon impact, ensuring it stays in place even after if a vehicle strikes it. Pop-out models directly violate this requirement. MUTCD regulations state, "Unless the In-Street Pedestrian Crossing sign is placed on a physical island, the sign support shall be designed to bend over and then bounce back to its normal vertical position when struck by a vehicle. (MUTCD 2009, Section 2B.12)"
  • Other websites' signs don't even follow the correct color configurations. If there isn't a red STOP or YIELD icon on the sign, it fails to pass the test. "The In-Street Pedestrian Crossing sign shall have a black legend (except for the red STOP or YIELD sign symbols) and border on a white background, surrounded by an outer yellow or fluorescent yellow-green background area."
  • Many sign manufacturers sacrifice a sign's longevity in favor of brighter reflectivity. "Diamond Grade" sheeting may dazzle brighter than High-Intensity or Engineer-Grade fluorescent sheeting, but upon impact with a vehicle the reflective squares will shatter, destroying their reflectivity. We make sure our signs maintain high visibility even after multiple impacts.
