The Vital Role of Traffic Control in Gated Communities

Gated communities are often seen as a symbol of safety, security, and exclusivity. With many people living in close proximity, it’s essential to have effective traffic control measures in place to ensure the safety of residents, guests and visitors. One of the most effective ways to control the flow of traffic in gated communities is by using road barriers.

Homeowners associations (HOAs) have a responsibility to maintain safe and secure communities, and effective traffic control is an essential part of that responsibility. Whether you’re managing a large housing development, a gated community, or a commercial or industrial property, traffic control is a critical component of the overall security plan.

The most effective tools for controlling traffic in gated communities are Roadshark International’s surface mount traffic spikes. The TigerTeeth models (TT38 and TT48) sit low on the ground and create a highly visible means of controlling traffic flow in and out of an area. The spikes are made from durable materials and are designed to withstand heavy vehicle traffic. They feature a low blade height of 3.75” and can be installed in under 2 hours with no messy epoxy or special equipment.

The benefits of using Surface Mount Traffic Spike in gated communities are numerous. Not only do they provide a physical barrier to keep vehicles out, but they also serve as a visual deterrent to would-be intruders.

Unlike other road barriers that require excavation and semi-permanent installation, the Surface Mount Traffic Spike can be placed directly on the ground and easily moved as needed.

In conclusion, effective traffic control is an essential component of a safe and secure gated community. By using Roadshark’s TT38 and TT48 models, HOAs can ensure that their communities are protected against unwanted visitors and potential security threats.
