Park Ally: Educating Pedestrians, Drivers and Business Owners About Traffic Safety

stop signs


Park Ally is a blog that is devoted to informing visitors about traffic safety; from the many types of bollards to new and interesting or controversial traffic laws, my hope is that you will learn more about what exactly keeps the roads reasonably safe, as well as what you can do to adhere to the rules. Many of us have a tendency to engage in riskier behavior on the road when we’re impatient or driven by irrational rage, but as you probably know this behavior can wind up ruining the lives of others as well as yourself in the worst circumstances. If you’re a business owner who wants to prevent damage to your business, it’s a good idea to protect your property with state-of-the-art traffic security measures.

Here’s one company that’s working to keep the roads safer, in different ways, for drivers and pedestrians alike.


People who want to protect their assets from traffic damage, as well as pedestrians, should consider installing a system of bollards during or immediately following the property’s construction. You’ll want store entrances and other areas exposed to traffic to be protected by certain types of traffic posts, delineators or channelizers. They have many top quality traffic safety products to ensure that your property is safe from vehicle damage.

With a wide array of products, reputable companies offer parking bollards that are lockable, non-locking, removable, embedded or surface mounted, along with channelizers and delineators such as barricade tape, stackable cones and recycled rubber bases. If you want added longevity for your traffic posts, consider their pipe sleeves, which will prevent posts from experiencing wear caused by weather and other factors.

Most prices are reasonable, and their products come in many colors to help supplement nearly any property’s environment.

Learn More About How We Drive

I was scouring the web for others who share my interest in traffic safety, and I came across an interesting author named Tom Vanderbilt (as far as I know, not related to the Vanderbilts) who has written a New York Times bestseller called Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us), which analyzes the dynamics of drivers and answers pertinent questions many of us have about how we drive, but never find an answer, such as “why does the other lane seem to be moving faster?”

Vanderbilt has also written a companion blog about traffic safety to accompany his book, with a lot of additional information that keeps his readers updated when something new and interesting about the world of traffic comes to light. It’s certainly an interesting read.

Look Out for Updates!

If I happen to learn about a trend in traffic safety or discover a company or person dedicated to keeping the roads safer, I’ll be sure to include them in future posts to spread the knowledge.
