What our customers are saying about our radar speed signs
The data from the signs helped us identify one area that we thought had a speeding problem. But we learned it was much worse than we thought. People are ecstatic about the sign. It does slow traffic. The sign helps in two ways. It slows drivers who are speeding and it informs residents who think cars are speeding that they often are not.
The signs have been really great. They have increased public awareness and goodwill. We have seen a real improvement in our traffic situation. Roughly 80% of local people and 70% of those passing through are slowing down now.
We use the sign to calm citizens’ concerns about speeding in their neighborhoods. Those who have a problem, we put it in their yard and share the results with them. We also post it on Facebook so the community knows what is going on.
Often people standing in their yard watching cars pass think that the cars are going much faster than they are. This shows residents the true speed.
It’s a great PR tool. We use it not to create revenue but to work with the public and slow traffic, and it has done its job.
We had speed trailers, but they are a pain to set up and take down. The TC-400s are smaller and do the same thing, but they are easier to set up. We use the dual battery system and swap them out every 5-7 days.
We have traffic calming projects in different areas. We wanted to see if feedback signs would drive down speeds. And, so far, the results have been good. We are planning to get two more.
We looked at Radarsign and a competitor. The prices were similar, but the Radarsign seemed more durable and offered more features. They are well made.
“I am very pleased with compactness, weight, and battery life of the TC-400 and its overall capabilities. They are most definitely effective in slowing traffic.”
“The traffic data is very useful, especially when there are exaggerated claims of excessive speeding, like 55 in 25 mph zone.”
“The signs are a reminder to residents to keep their speed in check, and it is a reminder that the town board is looking out for their safety”
“We looked for alternatives to our old speed trailer, we liked the Radarsign TC-400 because it could fit in the back seat of the patrol car and be relocated so easily.”
“The signs definitely slow down the speeders. They 100% work.”
“This is the first year that the city can plan to use radar signs on main thoroughfares in the winter because, unlike speed trailers, these will not interfere with snow plows. They will not have to be moved when the streets need to be cleared.
We can use them almost anywhere, even on streets that were previously inaccessible to speed trailers.”
“Our safety program is very employee oriented. Employees fill out O&Fs (observation and feedback). Speed was one of their concerns. The driver feedback sign from Radarsign enabled us to address the issue.”
“It is working great. There has been a really good response. The townspeople are impressed. It is very easy to move. We absolutely love it. We leave the brackets up so that we can easily move it from one place to another.”
“Everything’s working great. We are very pleased with the battery life of the TC-400. It lasts two weeks, just as you said it would.”
“In my opinion there is no other product like yours. They are very well built. The ability to retrieve the traffic statistics is well done and the reports showing the trending are very helpful.”
The ease of hanging the TC-400 is so convenient. We purchased extra mounting brackets so that we can move the signs around quickly. They are so much easier to install than our old speed trailer.
“The city plans to use the traffic data to secure grants for sidewalks and other street improvements. The StreetSmart software has been very helpful with gathering the information that city operations need to develop the grant proposals.”
“Before the signs were up, the cars didn’t slow down, especially the big trucks. After the signs were installed, I can see people up ahead slowing down. Everybody hits their brakes.”
“We added some speed bumps, but some drivers treated them like launching pads. When we installed the feedback signs, they slowed the cars.”
“When I started comparing Radarsign to other signs, I found that Radarsign had everything that I liked. I knew I could stop my search.”
“Within two months of installing the sign, a drunk driver crashed and wiped out the sign. When city workers retrieved it from the side of the highway, we were shocked to find that it wasn’t destroyed. The signs are made fantastically. Some minor repairs needed to be made and it was like new.”
“We used the sign for a period of time without the display to monitor the speeds. After we turned on the display, we saw a real difference. They are definitely effective.”
“We chose Radarsign because we had purchased from them before and they had good service and good quality.”
“The speeds have reduced tremendously and we have gotten really good feedback from our citizens. Really good feedback.”
“The signs are working well. From my unmarked vehicle, I have watched as cars react to the sign. It has slowed them down dramatically.
“I really like that they are made in America. That means a lot to me.”
“We recently reduced the speed limit on our railroad tracks to 10 mph. We were looking for options to keep the locomotives within the speed limit. This has helped them reduce their speed and things are running pretty smooth now.”
“To address traffic complaints from the community, we wanted to see data to verify the speeding issues, including the times and speeds. From that information, we could determine the appropriate response and choose how we deployed our resources. The Radarsign speed sign is doing this for us.”
“The Radarsign driver feedback signs are working wonderfully and are doing what we need them to do. They pick up the speed of vehicles a good distance away and are a great reminder to drivers not to speed.”
“We put up several Radarsign driver feedback signs and there’s no question they’ve made a difference. The signs are hard to miss and they slow drivers down.”
“We installed a Radarsign driver feedback sign in a school zone and I definitely feel our roads are safer because of them.”
“Our Radarsign radar speed signs do their job in slowing people down, and make a huge difference in regards to manpower assignment.”
“We have three new Radarsign driver feedback signs in Helena and when people approach them, we see their brake lights come on. I don’t think drivers realized how fast they were going until the signs were installed.”
“The Radarsign driver feedback signs really help. We’ve put them in school zones and when people drive through, everyone sees their speed and it slows drivers down.”
“Radarsign was chosen because it was the complete package, easy to assemble and the price coincided with our budget. We found Radarsign, weighed the pros and cons of their radar speed signs vs other signs and purchased the Radarsign brand.”
“We really like the Safety in a Box package that Radarsign offers. The instructions were simple and straightforward and the installation was quick and easy. The pre-installed anchor bolts in the Sonotube form made it very buildable.”
“The signs are very visible to motorists, even on rainy nights.”
“We like the radar sign. People respect it.”
“Everybody is happy with the sign. We haven’t had a speeding complaint since the sign has been up.”
“Radarsign was recommended by the county sheriff’s department. The signs work great and we have heard from people who say it is slowing traffic.”
“The sign is working great. The batteries last longer than expected.”
“We are very, very satisfied with our purchase.”
“Many drivers didn’t pay attention to the speed limit dropping when they entered the city. We installed Radarsign speed signs at both ends of the street. We began to see brake lights immediately after installing the signs. “
“They are an effective tool for determining whether conditions warrant the deployment of human resources.”
“We first operated the signs in stealth mode and gathered data for a baseline. After the signs were was turned on fully functional, there was a 30-40% reduction in speeding violators. “
“The installation of the signs was straightforward and easy.”
“It’s an effective traffic-calming solution that doesn’t cost a lot. It has been a good return on investment.”
