Sleeping policeman ramps deter drivers from speeding in an area. The raised ramps provide a sharp bump for drivers if they drive over them too fast. Installing sleeping policemen in your area provides better road safety for drivers and pedestrians.
What is a Sleeping Policeman?
A sleeping policeman is essentially a speed bump or speed ramp. Once installed a speed ramp helps to reduce the speed of oncoming traffic where required. Sleeping policemen ramps are perfect for the likes of busy industrial estates, car parks, and warehouses.
Installing a sleeping policeman not only helps to slow down traffic it also helps to promote safe driving in busy environments.
