MARIETTA, Ga., January 28, 2021 — Radarsign, manufacturer of the world’s first armored radar speed sign, actively listens to what existing customers have to say about its product lines every day. That practice was especially important in 2020, when the company’s history of quality and reliability stood out more than ever to its customer base.
“Our customers choose — and stick with — Radarsign driver feedback signs for many reasons,” said Charlie Robeson, co-founder and managing partner of Radarsign. “We like to hear why in their own words. During this incredibly challenging year, things like reliability, quality and customer service were especially important to them.”
Radarsign Brand Signs ‘Just Work’
The story customers told the company in 2020 is one of durability and ease of use. “We’ve had zero battery issues with our radar speed signs from Radarsign,” said Chief William Drollinger, Bellaire, MI. “They run 24/7, just like you expect them to.”
It’s a sentiment echoed by municipalities and other organizations across the country. “Some of our Radarsign driver feedback signs have been up for more than 12 years, and we’ve never even had to upgrade. They just work,” explained Kevin Smith, engineering technician, Alpharetta, GA.
“We’ve had absolutely no problem with any of our signs from Radarsign at all,” Larry Springs, Street Division Chief, Broken Arrow, OK, added. “In fact, the very first one we installed got knocked over by a fellow driving a dump truck — and it still works like it’s new.”
Radarsign Radar Speed Signs Let Officers focus on Other Activities
Law enforcement organizations have seen the benefit of letting the signs calm traffic, freeing officers for more urgent issues.
“The signs get people to slow down, and they’re friendly,” said Capt. Jason Daniels, Hyde County Sheriff, NC. “In a tourist area, we don’t want to be too heavy-handed. The sign takes drivers out of that loop where they aren’t paying attention, just driving along.”
Capt. Paul Haase, Pella, IA, agreed. “In the high traffic areas that are harder to enforce, having the sign available certainly calms the traffic so we don’t always have to assign an officer,” he said. “We’ve seen a change in driver behavior in the locations where we’ve put a sign. We’ve even gone back to a previous location after moving a sign, and can still see a change there weeks later.”
Armored Design & High Likability Factor
Radarsign driver feedback signs are well built and liked by police, administrators and drivers alike.
“We looked at other vendors,” recalled Robert Gray, plant engineer with West Central Turkeys, Pelican Rapids, MN. “Nobody else had anything of substance. Radarsign had everything we were looking for.”
Chief Drollinger of Bellaire, MI, related: “Our department of public works installed the signs, and then told me, ‘That’s one beefy sign — not just a flimsy piece of plastic we’ll have to replace.’”
Helps with Budgeting, Personnel Allocation
Best of all? Driver speed signs from Radarsign work: they effectively calm traffic and increase safety for everyone, while helping control costs.
“It would be expensive to add salary for a security guard to be available daily to monitor the area for speeding. The sign is a small thing that could have cost substantially more and it’s paying for itself,” added Sergio Guzman, of the Pine Crest School, Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
Lt. Mark Hollandsworth, Montgomery County Sheriff, VA, explained: “We needed signs that would give us real time feedback, and also be affordable. It turns out the competition (to Radarsign) was overkill. Radarsign had more of what we specifically wanted — we could get the bells and whistles if we wanted them, but we didn’t have to purchase them just to get the basics.”
Easy to Install & Use
And that safety, durability and reliability comes wrapped with Radarsign’s hallmark easy-to-use capabilities.
“The signs are basically maintenance-free,” said George Gadiel, traffic engineer, Lake County, FL. “We do a yearly check to make sure they’re working properly and that everything looks good inside the signs, and that’s just about all we have to do.”
“We tried other brands,” echoed sign engineer TJ Langley, from Taney County, MO, “then found Radarsign. They’re just a lot easier to work with, and the charts are easier to read and understand.”
