ALPHARETTA, Ga., Feb. 14, 2011—After only a few weeks of use, city officials in Suwanee, Ga. have documented proof that the five Radarsign™ driver feedback signs installed at the end of 2010 are effectively slowing speeding drivers. Radarsign—the manufacturer of the world’s first armored driver feedback sign—provides traffic-calming products that are scientifically proven to help reduce driver speeds without impacting the environment, roads or driver comfort.
SuwaneePatch reporter Steve Burns reported on Suwanee, Ga.’s success in slowing speeding drivers with voluntary compliance driver feedback radar signs in Radar Still Watching Suwanee Motorists (Originally published Feb. 2, 2011)
As reported in the Suwanee Patch, the city of Suwannee began capturing drivers’ speed data in December 2010. Once operational, the signs were activated in stealth mode to allow Radarsign’s StreetSmart software to capture “before” data. The signs were then “turned on” for drivers to see their speeds, which allowed for the collection of the “after” data.
The data collected in Suwannee confirms that speeds decreased by up to five percent. Independent studies and Radarsign research confirm that after years of constant use, driver feedback signs continue to be as effective as they were on the first day of installation. By reducing car speeds, Radarsign products help save lives by making streets safer for pedestrians, drivers and law-enforcement officers.
In 2004, Atlanta-based Radarsign™ established new industry standards for traffic-calming solutions with the debut of the world’s first armored driver feedback signs, which are vandal, weather and bullet-resistant. The industry’s most durable radar signs are also the most ecological and energy efficient. Engineered and manufactured in the USA, Radarsign products are MUTCD-compliant and utilize recycled aluminum, innovative LED reflector technology, minimal battery power and solar panels to deliver bright, easy-to-read feedback to drivers. Radarsign products are scientifically proven to reduce drivers’ speeds and have been entrusted to provide safe and effective traffic-calming solutions for: municipalities, treasured national parks, schools, neighborhoods, military bases, and private and public development projects across the U.S., Canada and overseas. www.Radarsign.com.
