Road sign manufacturers, TWM, have come up with a new illuminated sign that uses radar to detect motorbikes riding above a recommended speed threshold into accident blackspots.

The 1020mm x 463mm sign’s reflective 'THINK' motorbike image is then highlighted by a blue LED border that illuminates along with the words 'BACK OFF' in white.

"Crash site signage/road hazard signs are a great way of providing a safety alert to motorists indicating a known hazardous area," say TWM on their website.

"The interactive sign is designed to be situated in locations that are renowned for vehicle incidents and speeding vehicles, with particular reference to speeding motorcyclists (This image can be amended to show any vehicle)."

There’s no word yet as to whether the sign has any takers or if trials are going ahead anywhere in the UK, but MCN will bring you more information as we get it.
