Radar speed signs (also known as radar signs, driver feedback signs, speed display signs, radar speed displays, and “Your Speed” signs) are traffic calming devices that slow speeders down by alerting them of their speed. They can be used by cities and towns, neighborhoods, school zones, work zones, parks, daycare areas, churches, or anywhere traffic tends to exceed a safe rate of speed.
Tests repeatedly show that:
- Speeders will slow down up to 80% of the time when alerted by a radar sign
- Typical speed reductions are 10-20%.
- Overall compliance with the posted speed limit will go up by 30-60%.
- Radar speed signs are particularly effective at getting “super speeders”—speeders driving 20 mph or more over the posted speed limit—to slow down
Radarsign offers radar speed signs that are attractive, easy to operate, constructed with a rugged design for long life, and were designed with safety features that allow easy operation while effectively slowing traffic down and making roads safer…and at an affordable price.
Radar speed signs help save lives
Studies have proven that slowing traffic down will greatly reduce the chances of a fatal accident involving pedestrians and automobiles. A pedestrian hit by a car at 40 mph has a 90% fatality rate; at 20 mph the fatality rate decreases to 10%. As you can see in the graph below, just a small reduction in speed has a dramatic effect on whether those involved live or die.
