A round aluminum or decorative black fluted aluminum pole is available for use with our radar speed signs.

Radarsign Safety Compliant Breakaway Pole Base
All Radarsign pole bases have a break-away design that meets FHWA guidelines. Our bases are designed to minimize damage and injury in the event of impact with the sign.
In an incident where a Radarsign driver feedback sign was installed, a hit and run driver ran off the road and collided with the sign. The local police investigated the incident. It was estimated that the vehicle was traveling approximately 40-50 MPH in a 25 MPH zone when it crossed lanes and struck the radar speed sign.
Radarsign’s pole base broke away from the sign pole on impact as it was designed to do. The radar speed sign sustained minimal cosmetic damage to the YOUR SPEED faceplate and the radar speed sign and solar panel remained operational and intact.
