Timespace Technology reports increasing demand for its Bridge Alert device, as operators are reminded of their obligation to prevent bridge strikes. Several recent incidents have again highlighted the need for operators to prioritise bridge strike prevention.
The Timespace Bridge Alert is a driver aid which gives audible and visual warnings of low bridges. Bridge Alert works in conjunction with Timespace digital video recorders, the embedded Bridge Clear database and the vehicle’s GPS system to alert drivers to the proximity of a low bridge.
“Traffic commissioners have recently again stressed the need for operators to employ measures to mitigate the risk of bridge strikes,” says Henry Heylen, Timespace commercial director. “While route planning and driver training are undoubtedly essential, Bridge Alert provides additional reassurance. The dashboard-mounted device is easy to install and is a valuable tool to help all operators.”
