The new signals of the DGT to protect the cyclist

The signals detect the cyclist and stay on until he leaves the danger zone

The DGT has presented in Murcia a new type of traffic signalsor with which he expects to warn the drivers of the presence of cyclists on the road.

With this measure the DGT pursues increase safety in areas of reduced visibility on those roads where cyclists and vehicles share a road.

According to Europa Press, the Government delegate, Francisco Jiménez, presented this past Friday the new luminous electronic signs that detect and alert drivers to the presence of cyclists at critical points on three of the four conventional roads in the Region of Murcia considered protected cycling routes, the RM-C1, where the presentation took place, the RM-B35 and the RM-A10.

These signs they detect the cyclist when entering a zone of reduced visibility and they stay on enough time until the protected section ends.

The set of each of these signals presented is equipped with detection electronics (sensors), microcontroller, GPRS communications, solar power and battery, fixed signaling and 3 high luminosity LEDs.

A good measure, which we hope will be extended to the rest of the national territory in search of the safety of some of the most fragile groups on the roads, the cyclist.
