Public Service Announcement - Speed Signs

Motorists will notice that dynamic speed limit/radar signs have been set up on roadways within our jurisdiction. The decision to purchase the signs was a result of an increase in complaints received for speeding on some of our primary and secondary roadways. As drivers approach the sign, it will display their current speed and give drivers a reminder to self-correct their speed in lieu of continuing at that rate and receiving a citation, or even worse, end up in a traffic collision or strike a pedestrian.

The signs are moveable and will be placed in areas where crashes and speeding are a legitimate concern. The signs also collect much-needed data making it possible for us to further identify problem areas where enforcement may be a necessity. With the placement of the new signs, the department asks motorists to cooperate with our mission by simply slowing down which will result in safer roadways for all of us.
