Endurablend - traffic calming road markings that go the distance
Are you an elected official getting tons of requests from concerned citizens to deal with frequent speeding on a local street? Did you notice that solely imposing a speed limit is not enough to keep the neighborhood safe and comfortable for pedestrians? Fortunately, there is a lot of other traffic calming treatments and strategies that can help you slow down and divert cars in residential areas. These include adding parallel parking spots, street narrowing, building sidewalk extensions, chicanes, roundabouts, raised medians, diverters as well as installing speed bumps, humps, and tables. But there is also a less expensive and time-efficient way to balance the car flow on the streets, and it involves simply adding traffic calming markings to the pavement. What they do is increase awareness by using various colors, textures, and patterns to attract drivers’ attention and visually narrow down the travel lanes. Using traffic road markings helps to reduce the speed, minimizing the risk of accidents on the road.
Types of pavement markings to slow traffic
Using Endurablend, you can create colored and flush:
- Pedestrian crosswalks
- Shoulders and medians
- Gateways, etc.
The research has shown that using physical measures such as colored, patterned, and textured traffic line markings allows you to effectively control the vehicle speed and encourage the driving behavior that is safe and appropriate for the corresponding environment. All of this helps reduce the number of road accidents and increase the quality of life of people living, working, or spending their leisure time in the neighborhood.
Because Endurablend is an ultra-thin polymer cement coating it is significantly more durable than paint. However, Endurablend has been developed to be used in just about any application that might traditionally be used for paint with no limitation of color or pattern. It's durability will mean less maintenance, fewer reapplications, and easier to clean than a painted surface, saving money in the long run. Contact our knowledgeable representatives today.
