“The difference is drastic. They are no longer speeding like they used to. Before installation, we were seeing 3-4 tickets per month with average ticketed speeds of over 42.5 MPH. After installation, we’ve seen only 3 tickets in last 5 months. Now 90% of drivers are driving below 33 MPH…If the industry experts were all saying Radarsign was the best choice, that was enough for me.”
– Joseph Karr, Wedgewood HOA – Columbus (OH), October 2013
Speeding in residential areas and neighborhoods is the most common citizen complaint issued to police departments and city council representatives throughout the United States and is a danger to pedestrians, bicyclists and especially to children.The fatality rate in residential zones due to car accidents is nearly 3 times the rate on highways.
How to Stop Speeders in Your Neighborhood
The Community Associations Institute estimates that over 25 million American homes are governed by Homeowner Associations (HOAs), which work to protect home values and contribute to the overall quality of life in their neighborhoods. If speeding drivers is a concern in your neighborhood, Radarsign’s systems provide an effective, neighborhood traffic calming solution because the radar speed sign alerts drivers of their speed.
- Speeders will slow down up to 80% of the time when alerted by a radar sign
- Typical speed reductions are 10-20%.
- Overall compliance with the posted speed limit will go up by 30-60%.
