Securing workmen during roadworks

Securing workmen during roadworks

TOTEM is a safety device used to inform offending drivers.

The accident risk in work zones is very high on major roads. Solutions had to be found to avoid such accidents, which are often deadly.

TOTEM is a safety device positioned at the beginning of the work zone. It measures vehicles speeds and informs speeding drivers by displaying their registration plate on a mobile illuminated panel placed just before the section of road where the road workers are present. By providing comprehensive information to road users, Totem has played a role in greatly reducing the number of speeding offenses committed in work zones and has thus saved lives.
