New white paper profiles the traffic calming efforts in four different communities, the speeding problems they faced, the community’s need, and the reason these mayors chose Radarsign.
MARIETTA, Ga., June 12, 2018—About 75 percent of all municipalities in the U.S. are classified as small towns. In these locations—where “Main Street” is often a state highway—mayors and city leaders face unique traffic calming challenges. They must balance the safety concerns of local citizens with the roadway compliance regulations of the state. Within the four featured communities, radar speed signs from Radarsign were the preferred solution. This is because they addressed the needs of both the community and the state DOT.
Radarsign, the manufacturer of the world’s first armored driver feedback sign, has been working directly with mayors to solve speeding problems for almost 15 years. This work has been documented and compiled into a new white paper to serve as a resource for other municipalities that face speeding problems on state roads.
Speeding on Main Street: Best Practices for Traffic Calming in Small Towns is a collection of success stories featuring the traffic calming efforts from four towns in different states. In these profiles, city leaders share the speeding problem they faced, their community’s need, the benefits of radar speed signs, and the reason they chose Radarsign. The mayors featured are:
- Mayor Don Sutton – The Town of Betterton, Maryland
- Mayor David H. Bradford – Muscle Shoals, Alabama
- Ted Beck, Volunteer Community Leader – Dupuyer, Montana
- Mayor Andrew Gilich – Biloxi, Mississippi
