Speed Humps are no Panacea

Car CrashA pair of traffic fatalities inspired Sun City, Arizona residents to press for solutions at a recent town hall meeting. Initially, many were calling for speed bumps. That is until a county traffic manager and the fire marshal outlined the disadvantages to the controversial construction-based devices. The possibility of increased traffic noise, delayed emergency response time, and diminished home values left residents searching for other options.

These Arizona residents discovered what communities around the country have already learned: speed humps are not the traffic panacea they were once considered. The solution these citizens are searching for can be found with driver feedback signs from Radarsign®. Radar speed signs quietly slow speeders without hampering emergency vehicles. And, they can be an attractive addition to well-managed communities.
