SID Speed Display


System Overview

Developed to inform drivers and the community of speed behavior, SID is a rugged, lightweight radar activated Speed Indication Display that can be used at temporary or permanent locations.

SID provides a non-confrontational warning to drivers, warning them of their speed via an LED display and putting social pressure on them to decrease speed when required.

Affectionately known as “Smiley SID” Speed Indication Display, SID has gained acceptance by its user selectable „Safety Smile“ mode giving a friendly presentation of a serious message, reinforcing safety and educating drivers on site and within our communities.

  • Road safety at school zones
  • Road safety in communities
  • Road safety at factory premises
SID can be used as a portable or permanent solution to road safety education. Used extensively as a co-operative education tool by the Police, Local Authorities, Communities and Schools.Many units have been supplied to site facilities and H&S managers as part of the requirement to show corporate social responsibility. The unit is favoured for is light weight, ease of use and robust design.

Conscious of competing in a market where low cost and low functionality units meet the requirements for speed education SID has been developed to provide entry level functionality with the ability to optionally evoke many of the advanced features that users usually find lacking in other devices when used in real life situations.
