Safety Marking Inc. uses custom built, state of the art Rumble Strip technology.

  • Rumble strips are the grooves of pavement designed to alert distracted or inattentive drivers who might be driving too close to the edge of a highway.
  • The Rumble Hog, created by Hog Technologies, uses one-inch diamond-tipped teeth that can create the rumble markings along the side of the road at up to five miles per hour.

    Increasingly rumble strips are used on undivided roads to prevent head-on collisions and opposite direction sideswiped. Center line rumble strips can reduce single-vehicle run-off-road crashes by 50 percent on rural highways and 91 percent on urban two-lane roads. Most states in the U.S. have installed shoulder and edge line rumble strips as a way to prevent head-on and edge line vehicle crashes in areas where the speed limit is 45 miles mph and above.

    Besides the very effective safety measure rumble strips provide, the application is consistent, precise, and fast.
