Faulty flashing school zone signs replaced in WA were not made by A.D. Engineering International

An image of our school zone signs was mistakenly broadcasted on Channel 7 News and The West Australian online news on Tuesday 21st July 2015.

The news article stated that “faulty flashing school zone signs at 74 WA schools will be replaced with temporary static signs after they were found to be interfering with communication networks due to a software issue”.

The News Editor at Channel 7 and The West Australian sent us an apology email for their mistake and rectified their online news article with the following note:

“A picture previously published with this article showed the wrong flashing school zone sign. None of the faulty signs was manufactured by A.D. Engineering International.”
