Use of orange fluorescent sheeting on SLOP/SLOW paddle
New York state does not require the new fluoresecent sheeting on the “SLOW” side. Both the stop and slow sides are high-intensity sheeting. The state’s Maintenance Division only uses 24 inch paddles rather than the 18 inch minimum size to increase visibility. The units with strobes attached are more effective at attracting attention but there are problems with their durability and battery life.
