Activated by internally-mounted approved radar systems, the signs provide immediate feedback to motorists about their speed and can display ‘Slow Down” for over-speed events and “Thank You” in response to driver deceleration.


All our vehicle activated speed signs meet Highways Agency technical requirements, are easy to programme and feature the latest technology in a slimline, lockable casing. White and red LEDs provide ultra-bright daylight-viewable displays with automatic brightness control included as standard.

  • Speeds: 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60MPH (KPH optional)
