ALPHARETTA, Georgia, Sept. 10, 2015—As reported by the Hillsboro Sentry-Enterprise, residents of this Wisconsin city will soon be a seeing Radarsign driver feedback sign around town. Jack Knowles, Associate Editor writes: “The Hillsboro City Council decided to purchase one at its regular monthly meeting Monday night.“
Police Chief Tom Richardson outlined the benefits of the display and explained that many drivers are somewhat surprised when shown their current speed while coming through town.”
Driver feedback signs from Radarsign® are scientifically proven to slow speeding drivers. Drivers’ response when shown their current speed, as reported in this article, is part of a psychological concept known as a feedback loop. This concept acknowledges that when drivers are provided information about their actions in real time and given an opportunity to change their actions, they are likely to choose better behaviors.
Knowles’ article also documents the council’s due diligence in stewarding taxpayer funds: “One possibility was purchasing a more expensive sign…People who have trouble with a ‘heavy foot’ will be glad to know that the Council members took a pass on the more costly” sign.
Radarsign products are both durable, cost effective and portable. The Radarsign TC-400, according to Knowles, “… is portable so Richardson and Sgt. Pat Clark will be able to move it around to different locations.”
