Portable Traffic Signals

Driveway Assistance Device (DAD)


The DAD has a small footprint and is used to control intersections involving low-traffic side-roads or driveways. It’s proprietary Tumble Timing™ ​technology prevents motorists from driving the wrong way in a work zone.


The DAD is bottom-heavy for stability and has a small footprint compared to a full-size Portable Traffic Signal.

The tumble-timing feature minimizes the wait time for motorists as they safely cross or enter the work zone.

It uses quad-redundant communications, ensuring reliable connectivity suitable for use in long work zones spanning more than a mile.

The DAD incorporates on-board batteries and solar panels, enabling it to run for weeks and often months without charging.


  • Adjustable 5’ to 8’ Minimum Clearance
  • 4, Six-Volt Deep Cell Battery System
  • 21-Day Autonomy Based on Configuration
  • 100-Watt Adjustable Solar Array
  • 110 volt On-Board Charging System for Re-Charging
  • Optional Pedestal Cart for Easy Moving
  • Integrates with all Street Smart Products
  • Pedestrian Crossing Signal and Push Button Option
  • Driveway Assistance Device Option
Automated Flagger
Portable Traffic Signals

Automated Flaggers (AFAD)


The AFAD is a key component to a safer work zone, taking over the risky job along the roadway and enabling flaggers to monitor the work zone as they stand in a safer place out of harm’s way.


The AFAD is easy to tow and set up.

Mini message boards inform motorists of wait times and other pertinent job information, and the breakaway gate arms add extra stopping power to 12-inch LED lights, which sit nearly 10 feet off the ground when the AFAD is deployed.

It uses quad-redundant communications, ensuring reliable connectivity suitable for use in long work zones spanning more than a mile.

Use the app to set the AFAD to pilot-car mode or manual mode and control traffic from a safe location away from the roadside.

Our smaller, cart-style portable traffic signal systems are best for fast, efficient deployment without sacrificing quality or versatility. The operating system is software-based and conforms to NEMA standards. The smaller cart system is ideal for daily or short-term traffic control applications and provides increased work-zone safety while maximizing traffic flow.


Advanced Remote Monitoring (ARM)

The ARM system sends text messages and email alerts, reporting signal status and operation. Battery voltage, signal location, and fault status report in real-time or on-demand from our dedicated monitoring website.

Transport Trailer

It provides convenient storage and portability for an entire set of SQ2 signals. The expanded storage means you can also store solar panels, outriggers, and other work zone gear along with your signal system.

Solar & Outrigger Package

The addition of a 130-watt solar panel significantly increases the battery life of your SQ2 signal, while the outriggers allow for added cart stability on uneven surfaces.

Ramp Meter Signal

The Temporary Ramp Meter signal provides a quick, reliable solution to highway congestion. The system can be quickly deployed at any highway on-ramp to regulate the flow of traffic onto the highway and ease overall congestion.

Cabled Remote

Easily place a call for green at either end of the work zone, or rest both signals of a 2-phase operation in red. Programmed red clearance intervals are always inserted between green indications, preventing the possibility of conflict.

Wireless Remote

With up to a 1/2 mile range, the wireless remote is the most convenient method of manual signal control. The built-in vibration function works as a confirmation of each button press, and the signals switch back to automatic mode with just one tap.

Pilot Car

The Pilot Car (Flagger) module allows a pilot car driver to control a Horizon Signal System remotely via a handheld transmitter for simple, all-day operation.

Driver Assistance Device

Alerts motorists in residential driveways as to the direction of traffic flow in a one-lane bi-directional work zone. It helps to reduce the likelihood of wrong-way driving in work zones.

Signal Flaggers vs. Automated Flagger Assistance Devices

Both devices have unique capabilities. Contact us to learn what type is right for your project!

Both systems remove traditional “flaggers” from the roadway, creating a safer work environment and decreasing likelihood of injury or death


A traditional Automated Flagger Assistance Devices (AFAD) system requires an operator to present during use


Signal flaggers can handle single lane closures or can be combined with other signal systems to intersections, driveways, side roads, etc..


Automated Flagger Assistance Devices (AFAD) are most often used in single-lane closures


Both the Automated Flagger and AFAD meet the required crash-worthiness performance criteria
