Wet Weather VAS at Friction Deficient Sites
VAS units are discrete signs, which remain blank until activated by an approaching vehicle exceeding a preset speed limit, or `trigger speed‘.
Familiarity: Drivers will respond better to signs that are familiar to them. VAS can use established warning and regulatory diagrams from the MUTCD which are automatically recognisable to the motorist.
