Defining the right type of sign for a specific project can be challenging. There are many different reasons and criteria that effect the choice of one product versus another.

On the other side, very simple and cheap solutions exists, such as static signs with flashing beacons. Although, this can also have many disadvantages and does not solve most of the problems discussed in one of our previous blogs.
