Speeding, Distracted Driving and Radar Speed Signs: The Science that Connects Them

White Paper from Radarsign Illustrates How Radar Speed Signs Can Combat Risky Driver Behaviors

Distracted driving is one of the top reasons why drivers speed. Yet, the relationship between driver speed and driver distraction—and the science that connects the two risky behaviors—is often overlooked. To bridge the gap, Radarsign—the manufacturer of the world’s first armored radar speed signs—has released a new white paper, Distracted Driving and Radar Speed Signs: The Science that Connects Them.” The white paper helps municipalities and law enforcement agencies better understand how these risky driver behaviors are related and how radar speed signs can mitigate both.

“We know that driver behaviors must change,” says Charlie Robeson, co-founder and managing partner at Radarsign. “The question is, ‘How do we change them?’ Radarsign driver feedback signs are scientifically proven to change driver behaviors and can be part of a larger dual strategy to combat speeding and distracted driving.”

Radar speed signs are effective due to 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.

Radarsign, the manufacturer of the world’s first armored driver feedback signs, has been named by GovCIO Outlook as one of the Top 10 Law Enforcement Solution Providers of 2018. Government CIO Outlook is a technology magazine based in Fremont, California, that focuses on the trends, challenges and opportunities that help CIOs deliver efficient technology services that enable smart government.
