As the name implies, the accelerator is one of the urban furniture equipments in the traffic field, which is used to reduce the speed of vehicles at intersections, sharp turns, and also to prevent vehicles from colliding with other people and cars. In our country, accelerators are usually created in two ways: one in the form of ridges made of asphalt and the other accelerators that are made of plastic and metal materials with different colors; Including cat eye accelerator and 33 cm by 90 cm plastic accelerator.
Form and shape:
The form of accelerators will have a significant impact on how the deceleration slows down and its effect on the passing car. The higher the level of the accelerator protrusion, the lower the speed.
Location and installation:
In locating the accelerators should be as far as possible on special routes and the passage of ambulances. In order to reduce the speed of cars in the mentioned routes, three-dimensional images can be used, which have no effect on the car but have an effect on their acceleration.
Accelerator paint, which mostly includes plastic accelerators, uses indicator colors (yellow and white) that are visible from a distance of 50 meters. For easier identification of these elements, roadside warning signs are usually used, and of course, at least 50 meters left to the accelerator, or cast iron studs are used to warn the driver.
