The neighborhood speed radar program rotates mobile speed radar signs to different neighborhood streets, where they serve as an education tool, encouraging motorists to drive the speed limit. The signs show drivers how fast they are actually traveling, while collecting speed and volume data displayed on the Neighborhood Speed Radar map.
The radars signs are placed from May through October at locations selected by the neighborhood associations. The schedule allows for about three sign locations per NA, for two to three weeks at each location.
