Radarsign in the News: Governing.com Reports on How and Why Mayors Are Using Radarsign Brand Radar Speed Signs to Stop Speeding Drivers

Don Sutton, mayor of Betterton, Maryland, shares his town’s traffic-calming success with other municipal leaders and mayors across the U.S.

MARIETTA, Ga., Jan. 23, 2018—After a couple of traffic calming options failed to slow speeding drivers, the mayor of town of Betterton, Maryland, found a solution in Radarsign® Brand Radar Speed Signs. Radarsign is the manufacturer of the world’s first armored driver feedback signs, which are available in three sizes. Betterton purchased a Radarsign TC-600, a full-matrix radar speed sign that is available in AC and solar power models. The TC-600 speed display is easily readable up to 600 feet away and is ideal for roads with a speed limit of 10-45 mph.

The governing.com 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 radar speed signs.

In the article, Mayor Don Sutton shares that Betterton installed the Radarsign 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.”
