MARIETTA, Ga., April 17, 2019—WLWT News 5’s Ashley Kirklen reports on the radar speed signs that are appearing in neighborhoods and communities all around Cincinnati.
The Cincinnati Police Department and the Ohio Department of Transportation are using the driver feedback signs from Radarsign to gather speed and traffic data to determine and target speeding hotspots in the city. Data gathered from the signs will help the departments determine whether or not more needs to be done to keep pedestrians safe and hold drivers accountable.
These signs are part of a larger pedestrian safety plan that the city is implementing in 25 neighborhoods. The city has also purchased four portable signs that can be rotated around the city on a monthly basis.
