Columbus, OH Reports Cost Savings and Success with Radarsign

ALPHARETTA, Ga., Jan. 7, 2013—After residents asked for new approaches to combat speeding, the city of Westerville made the decision to break away from buying any expensive and trailer-mounted driver feedback signs. Instead, the city is enjoying the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of portable, pole-mounted signs from Radarsign®, the manufacturer of the world’s first armored driver feedback sign.

According to an article in The Columbus Dispatch, city engineers received complaints from residents about speeding drivers.  While additional officers were assigned to the area, once they left, the speeding resumed.  Four new portable driver feedback signs from Radarsign–which cost about half of what four trailers would cost–have been installed and are answering the need.

Police Chief Larry Rinehart appreciates Radarsign’s portable design: “Locking brackets allow city workers to easily move the signs from pole to pole,” said Rinehart.  “They just need a reminder: There’s a speed limit here, and here’s how fast you’re going.”

Radarsign makes roads safer with scientifically-proven traffic-calming solutions. Each year thousands of pedestrians are injured in traffic crashes—69,000 in 2008.
