PORT COLBORNE, ON – North America Traffic Inc. (NAT), the industry leader in portable traffic control systems, has announced that its founder, Peter Vieveen, has retired as President of the Company.
Vieveen has led North America Traffic (formerly RC Flagman) since 1993, when he launched the world’s first AFAD (Automated Flagger Assistance Device) from his garage. NAT is now globally recognized as a leading industry innovator providing an extensive range of AFADs, portable traffic lights and warning signals.

An early adopter of solar charged, battery powered signals, NAT is also recognized for developing versatile, easy-to-use programming for varied applications.
