CloudCONNECTED 200x128 1The SafePace Evolution 12 offers the cost benefit and compact footprint of an entry-level sign but with MUTCD approved 12” digits. The economical sign is a great option for cities or communities with limited budgets who need signs that meet MUTC regulations.
The Evolution 12 is a compact radar speed sign ideal for private communities, work sites, or low volume local roads. Speed signs like the Evolution 12 help with traffic calming by reminding drivers of their speeds and encouraging them to slow down. Radar signs are posted along with speed limit signs to remind motorists to observe speed laws.

As with all Safepace speed display signs, the Evolution 12 displays driver speed in bright LED digits. Its bright 3 digit speed display also offers speed activated digit color changes to alert speeders.

The Evolution 12 offers a choice of power sources and accessories. It’s a compact solution that improves speed awareness and enhances public safety.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How is the Evolution 12 different than the Evolution 11?
    While both the 12” and 11” signs offer compact, lightweight speed display, only the 12” sign has digits large enough to meet MUTCD regulations. It also offers multiple digit color options while the 11” signs only offer yellow LEDs.
  • Why would we choose such a small radar sign?
    The smaller size of the Evolution 12 as compared to our full size signs offers a smaller footprint and lower cost. However, the smaller digits can’t be seen from as far away, making it a better choice for low volume roads with lower speed limits.
  • How do we know if the Evolution 12 is a good choice for our streets?
    Our traffic safety support team is trained and available to help you figure out which speed display sign is the best fit to address your streets’ unique challenges.
  • How do we know if our signs are actually making a difference?
    All Evolution signs are web enabled and come with one year free access to the cloud. You can view detailed speed data from before and after you use your speed sign to track the difference it’s making in driver behavior.
  • How can we test data from before our signs are being used?
    SafePace Evolution signs offer stealth mode, where your signs appear to be off but are actually collecting traffic data. This helps you create a base of data to compare to. We also offer Speed Tracker for even more discreet speed collection data.


Reflective Sheeting Types

DG Highest Visibility (Fluorescent)

The highest level of reflectivity. Up to 10X brighter than Engineer-Grade Prismatic. Offers great visibility and reflectivity from distances and wide angles, both day at night.

Meets or Exceeds ASTM D 4956, Type IX or Type XI

Related Terms:

HIP High-Intensity Prismatic

3X brighter than Engineer-Grade Prismatic. Effective for daytime, nighttime and artificial light conditions. Provides durability and long-term reflectivity.

Meets ASTM D 4956, Type III, Type IV.

Related Terms:

ENG Engineer Grade

Economical prismatic sheeting provides better day and nighttime brightness and is recommended for commercial sign applications as well as non-critical traffic control signs, regulated by the MUTCD.

Meets ASTM D 4956 Type I

Substrate Material Types

Aluminum Blanks

Aluminum sheeting meets or exceeds ASTM 5052-H38 specifications and is .081" thick. Traffic signs use this specification to meet Transportation Standards, unless otherwise stated for non-critical traffic signage or commercial applications. All aluminum blanks come with pre-drilled holes for mounting, and rounded corners.

Meets or Exceeds ASTM 5052-H38, 0.081" Thickness

Crezone (HDO) Wood

Crezone HDO (High Density Overlaid) board is extremely durable exterior type plywood with a weather-resistant resin overlay bonded to the wood by heat and pressure. This process fuses the molecules of the overlay with the fibres of the wood to form a bond as strong as the wood itself. In many instances, overlaid HDO plywood has proven a more durable sign material than metal. HDO plywood is resistant to the elements with no danger of rust or corrosion. It is typically used for larger signs, or uncommon sizes made-to-order.
