Schools may be shutting down this week in the USA and Canada, but drivers need to remain vigilant on the roads in their communities. 
As the warm weather arrives it brings more kids outside. Please pay attention to your driving, in particular your speed and make it a safe and fun summer for everyone - thanks from the Road Safey team at Unipart Dorman.
First introduced in 2008 after being piloted by various communities in Ontario, VATCS are now in operation across 5 provinces and are steadily becoming the benchmark for consistent community display based traffic calming. The City of Brantford, Ontario (as shown in the image to this blog) installed 6 new School Zone VATCS this spring.
Unipart Dorman's School Zones Speed Limit Awareness
Unipart Dorman's regulatory school zone VATCS units employ time of day schedulers and microwave Doppler radar to detect vehicle approach speed. In line with the core MUTCD philosophy of a consistent road speed management strategy, the signs utilize alternating Posted Speed Limit and School Zone diagrams during peak school times to target drivers with a reasoned warning to pay more attention to their speed.
