Story Highlights Radarsign’s Corporate Success, Technology and Community Impact
ALPHARETTA, Ga., July 21, 2016—Radarsign—the manufacturer of the world’s first armored driver feedback sign—was the subject of a feature story in the Forsyth Herald newspaper. “Radarsign Locally Owned Business,” written by Kathleen Sturgeon, illuminates some of the local, national and international distinctives of Forsyth-county based Radarsign.
The article confirms some key points about how and why radar speed signs work. The signs “calm and slow down speeders by alerting them in real time of their speed. The sign uses radar to detect the speed of the vehicle, and flashes the number on the LED display, usually under the speed limit of road.” And “…tests repeatedly show that speeders will slow down up to 80 percent of the time when alerted by a radar sign. Typical speed reductions are 10 to 20 percent. And overall compliance with the posted speed limit will go up by 30 to 60 percent.”
Since Radarsign was founded in 2004, radar speed signs have grown in popularity and are now the preferred traffic calming solution for towns, cities and law enforcement agencies, large and small. “The concept is so popular, there are products in all 50 states, Canada and U.S. military bases overseas.” And Radarsign has now “sold more than 6,000 signs.”
