Every 20 minutes, someone is killed or seriously injured on a British road – as an industry we have systems and technology that can and does save lives – most road accidents are preventable.
There were 1,770 road deaths in the year ending June 2018 – drivers traveling at inappropriate speeds contribute to around 11% of all injury collisions reported to the police – with 15% of crashes resulting in a serious injury and 24% of collisions resulting in a fatality (DfT statistics 2018).
This includes both ‘excessive speed’ – when the speed limit is exceeded – but also driving or riding within the speed limit but not in accordance with conditions at the time (for example, in poor weather, poor visibility or high pedestrian activity).
Coeval is committed to supporting clients in reducing accidents related to speeding drivers; with our range of speed reduction systems aimed at influencing driver behaviour. Our speed reduction systems make road users aware of their speed and/or warn them of a hazard ahead or poor driving conditions; enabling them to adjust their speed accordingly. Our solutions are designed to be easy to install and maintain and, once active, provide a safer environment for us all.
Coeval is a specialist in robust, LED road sign-based systems that advise, inform and educate and are:
‘Even a short closure of the tunnel causes great congestion in the area, and if an over height vehicle were to cause that level of damage, the tunnel could be closed for hours, if not days, which would bring the whole of the South East of England to a standstill.
When the Coeval over height vehicle detectors were first installed, we were talking about 10’s of vehicles a day that we were stopping; we are now down to low single figures, 4 or 5 vehicles a day we need to extract for being over height, so it’s a great improvement in efficiency through the crossing.’
‘Having used Coeval for the first time, we found them to be friendly and really helpful in ensuring we received the correct item we required. We were happy with the extremely quick response times and professional service they offer. We would definitely recommend their services to others.’
‘Thank you for your prompt and efficient service regarding our request for training on the 21st of August. You guys have been incredibly helpful over this.’
‘Coeval won the tender for the replacement overheight vehicle detector systems. The work was completed within programme and budget. We are now satisfied that the new systems will help protect the bridges for several years to come.’
‘A sound, honest and efficient service provided by Coeval. Would be very happy for Coeval to manufacture and supply more of Swindon’s signs.’
