City Managers and Clerks Choose Radarsign for Traffic Calming

ALPHARETTA, Ga., April 25, 2017 —While elected officials may establish policies and approve budgets for cities and towns across the country, it is often the city clerks and managers—who are appointed to their positions—who are tasked with executing these policy decisions. When it comes to implementing a traffic calming program, time and again, these city managers and clerks are looking to Radarsign®—the manufacturer of the world’s first armored radar speed sign.

Their expert knowledge of the daily operations within their communities uniquely equip city managers and clerks to evaluate and identify the most effective solutions, given their needs and resources.

City Managers and Clerks say that they choose Radarsign driver feedback signs because they are:  

  • Scientifically proven to be effective.
    “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.” 
               — Wendy Carter, City Clerk – City of Hoschton (GA)
  • Well liked by residents.
    “Everybody is happy with the sign. We haven’t had a speeding complaint since the sign has been up.”   
               — Mary Campbell, Clerk – Town of North Redington Beach (FL)  
  • Rugged and durable.
    “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.”  
               — Terry Willet, City Clerk – City of Flemington (GA)  

  • The preferred traffic calming solution of law enforcement agencies. This is because radar speed signs from Radarsign don’t interfere with response times of emergency vehicles and they augment or replicate the work of police.
    “With the signs, we don’t have to post a police officer all the time. They have more important things they can do. And now we only use them for speed monitoring at critical times.”  
    Henry DeJulia, Town Manager – Syracuse (IN)
  • A well-built solution and smart investment.  
    “When I first started researching radar speed signs and found Radarsign, I said, ‘Wow! Those look like well-built signs!’ What you are manufacturing is high quality. It’s a little more expensive than others, but I live by this adage: The most expensive tool is the one you have to buy twice. If you have to pay an extra 10% to get a better tool, it will pay off in the long run.”  
    David Shaw, Administrator/City Clerk –Town of Middleton (WI)

“Our TC-400 is a runaway best seller in the traffic-calming marketplace because it is so portable,” said Charlie Robeson co-founder and managing partner at Radarsign. “The sign can be quickly installed with universal mounting brackets which can be placed on multiple signs throughout a community creating a circuit for sign rotation. This maximizes the investment and supports budget needs.”
