This year the City has six moveable speed radars for use as an educational tool to encourage drivers to obey the speed limit. The radar signs provide feedback to drivers by showing the speed they are driving as they approach the sign. The signs notify speeders to slow down and affirm attentive drivers are obeying the speed limit. In addition the radars collect volume and speed data.
Due to the high demand for placement in the neighborhoods, we ask citizens to contact their Neighborhood Association (NA) with requests so that the NA can then prioritize and submit three locations to the City. We suggest the street locations you select should be more than three blocks long, connects other streets in the neighborhood, and has multiple speeding complaints.
Signs can only go where there is an existing speed sign post or space in the shoulder. The radars operate from May through October each year and are typically left up for three weeks. Requests can be sent to Ty Combs to get scheduled. In addition to the moveable radar signs, the city has three stationary radar signs near the City boundaries to help remind drivers to slow down as they leave the higher rural speed road segments and enter the city. Last year we installed signs on Century Drive, Bear Creek, and Shevlin Park Road. This year signs have been ordered for Skyliners and O.B. Riley Road.
