Message Signs

Spread the Word

Messaging Signs are the most flexible signs that we offer. They offer you the option of having one sign that can function as a radar speed sign, a variable message sign (VMS), and a traffic data collector- all in one unit. Communicate your messages via words, graphics, emojis, and even moving animations.

Used by municipalities, law enforcement, colleges and universities, event venues, military bases, home owners associations, warehouses and more – anyone who manages roads, parking lots, or large groups of people can find good use for a message sign. They are also a very popular product for rental agencies. 

Choose from trailer-mounted or pole-mounted options.

Pole-Mounted Graphic Display

It can be mounted it to a pole or vehicle, or, using the optional handle and feet, can stand on its own anywhere you’d like.

The Street Dynamics Web Portal allows you to access any connected PMGs remotely. Update displayed messages, schedule message sequences months or even years in advance, and create reports with your collected traffic data. You can also connect to your PMG directly using a PC or via the “Speed Sign” app (available for iOS and Android).

Add an MUTCD-compliant “YOUR SPEED” frame to instantly transform your sign into a traffic calming device perfect for school zones, HOAs, and busy streets in your community. 

The PMG can also be paired with our Flood Sensors or other NTCIP and external trigger devices to automatically send alerts about road closures or other hazardous driving conditions ahead.

Message Sign FAQs

Are Variable Message Signs Effective?

Variable message signs are very effective, and they are also very cost-effective because they can serve so many purposes.

Radar equipped messaging signs can be used as “SLOW DOWN”/ “YOUR SPEED” signs, and can also be equipped with strobes in a variety of colors to attract even more attention.

Because they have larger display screens, they can also function as a way to convey either singular messages or a series of message screens for longer messages. Our message signs even allow you to design graphics and animations. 

Message signs can be used by law enforcement agencies, municipalities, HOAs, schools, businesses, event planners, construction companies, and so many more organizations. 

What Kind of Messages Can Messaging Signs and Trailers Display?

The MC360 and PMG can be programmed to display just about any message you desire, including text-based messages, graphics, animations, and emojis. You can also program sequences of messages to be triggered, such as “TOO FAST” followed by “SLOW DOWN.”
