Mobile Vehicle Activated Sign

Do you have concerns about the speed of traffic in your area? The Traffic & Safety Team can organise for a mobile vehicle activated traffic sign to be sited temporarily in a location near you.

The sign uses radar detection to monitor and record the speed of vehicles. If a vehicle is travelling over the speed limit, the sign flashes the approaching vehicles speed and "slow down" at the driver therefore providing a reminder to the driver to keep within the speed limit.

Mobile vehicle activated signs can be successful in reducing the speed of traffic. Use of the sign allows traffic engineers to gain a better understanding of traffic conditions prior to introducing any speed-reducing measures. The sign can be deployed at locations on a rotational basis where there is an identified accident problem due to excessive speed.
