Supported by a grant from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, the City of Phoenix performed an eight-month comprehensive study of school crossing zones, comparing SureStop’s lighted signs to standard ones. The study examined eight different intersections chosen for their combination of high traffic and speed, compiling hours of video under varying conditions and times of day. The conclusion was clear:

“SureStop paddle is an effective tool to improve safety for crossing guards, students, pedestrians and drivers.”

City of Phoenix SureStop Paddle Study

Sure Stop paddles are the most effective crossing guard paddles for getting drivers' attention on the roadway. Distracted driving is a way of life these days and Sure Stop paddles are the most effective tool for crossing guards to use to get drivers' attention when they are crossing students. I'd love to see them at all schools in Phoenix.

We provided a grant to the City of Phoenix to perform a study on SureStop’s lighted stop signs and the results were clear: the SureStop paddles greatly increased visibility—and therefore safety—at school crossing zones.
