Median-Alert™ and Post-Alert™ featured in ATSSA Publication
May 19, 2015
After industry rave and acceptance of the Median-Alert, Alert-Brands™ products continue to make an impact with some of the most influential organizations in the transportation safety industry. In the most recent American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA)publication, both the Median-Alert™ and the newest addition to the Alert-Brands™ product line--the Post-Alert™, were featured as devices that work together to make medians and their signs (as well as the sign messages) safer and more conspicuous.
The publication, “IMPROVING DRIVER BEHAVIOR WITH INFRASTRUCTURE SAFETY COUNTERMEASURES,” was recently hand delivered by ATSSA members to over 100 of our U.S. congressional leaders. The intent of the publication was to point out infrastructure measures that can counter the effect of distracted driving. The pairing of the Post-Alert™,a device that increases the visibility of sign posts and their messages, and the Median-Alert™ in such a respected organization’s publication thrilled PPP. Greg Driskell, owner and inventor of the Post-Alert™ and the Median-Alert™ commented that, “It’s fantastic to have these solutions recognized by our peers and industry leaders.” He went on to say, “By pairing the Median-Alert™ and the Post-Alert™, universities, municipalities, residential and commercial communities will reduce accidents, injuries and deaths at sharp curves, medians, round-abouts,intersections, and near and dear to my heart- wrong way driving and pedestrian crossings. “ Greg then added, “In addition to the human-safety factor, these devices will reduce repair and replacement costs to both the motorists and the agencies.”
The Alert-Brand products are truly making a visible difference in roadway safety. The Median-Alert™ dramatically improves the night time visibility of median noses, providing a clear and concise message to the motorist of the location, shape and size of the median. The Post-Alert improves the ability for signs to be seen and communicate their critical message.

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - They are called barrier alert or median alert devices and their inventor said they're a cost effective way to make the I-10 Calcasieu River Bridge safer. Installation is expected to begin Wednesday night.
To many people, the I-10 bridge is scary enough during the daytime, but as this nighttime video shows, it's quite dark on the bridge. But Greg Driskell's invention will be wrapped around the bridge median to increase visibility.
