Municipal Traffic Calming Solutions

Speeding is the number one complaint in many cities and towns. Radar speed signs have proven to be an effective, reliable, and affordable traffic calming solution for reducing speeding drivers.

  • Speeders will slow down up to 80% of the time when alerted by a radar speed sign
  • Typical speed reductions are 10-20%.
  • Overall compliance with the posted speed limit will go up by 30-60%

Radarsign offers a variety of options to serve the traffic calming needs of municipalities. And when used with Streetsmart traffic data reporting software option, the radar speed signs provide key data to quantify speeding problems. This allows for intelligent deployment of limited police staff for enforcement.

Customer Testimonials

Had a few people hit by (speeding) cars in dark areas. We wanted to get people to slow down. There hasn’t been an accident since installing the signs. The flashing lights actually get people’s attention, and they’ve helped quite a bit.

Some of our Radarsigns have been up for more than 12 years, and we’ve never even had to upgrade. They just work.

We were so happy with our original four signs by Radarsign that we purchased 10 more. The driver speed signs from Radarsign have greatly curbed speeders in our densely populated communities —no longer are we seeing folks speed 81 mph in a 30 mph speed zone.

School Zones

Our radar speed signs can be used with flashing beacons to create the most effective message to speeders around schools. The signs can manage multiple speed limits during the day, and have an option to add a relay switch that will trigger beacons to go on when speeders are detected. We offer a turnkey radar speed sign/beacon package with or without timer/controllers to pre-program for an entire year. Learn more about the School Zone Safety Systems


The article“How One Small Town Slowed the Leadfoots Down”—shares how the “Maryland community combined cost-effective technology and data analysis to get its speeding problem under better control” by using Radarsign™ Brand Radar Speed Signs.

According to Mayor Don Sutton, Betterton installed the Radarsign™ Brand TC-600, which “…came with software that captures data on driver speeds and documents the time of day that speeding occurs. For the first time we could use analytics to see when drivers were actually speeding. This allowed us to better coordinate law enforcement services when we needed them most.”
