Radar Sign Donation


Eastern Adams Regional Police were presented with a donation from Michael Deshong, president of the New Oxford Social & Athletic Club to purchase a new radar speed sign to combat complaints from citizens that vehicles are traveling in our neighborhoods at unsafe speeds.

The New Oxford Social Club recognizes the im...portance of driver safety in keeping our residents safe.

Radar speed signs, also known as driver feedback signs, are traffic calming devices designed to slow speeders down by alerting them of their speed. They are being used across the country, and around the world, because they are effective at slowing speeding drivers down. Tests repeatedly show that:

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%.

Radar speed signs are particularly effective at getting “super speeders”—speeders driving 20 mph or more over the posted speed limit—to slow down

The radar speed sign will be utilized to prepare computerized reports on traffic conditions to our stakeholders who make complaints of speeding conditions on their streets by their residences. The reports generated will enable us to give a detailed analyses of traffic patterns to our residence to ensure traffic safety and enforcement remedies if necessary.
