US beauty spot reduces speeders with traffic calming signs

Radarsign installation at Stone Mountain Park provides drivers with feedback of their speed and has resulted in a significant reduction in speeding motorists making the park safer for all
US beauty spot reduces speeders with traffic calming signs
Radarsign, one of the country's leading manufacturers and retailers of driver feedback signs, has announced three signs installed around Stone Mountain Park have successfully and consistently slowed. The Radarsign speed signs initially detected seventy percent of park visitors were speeding and quickly brought that total number down to only twenty-three percent of drivers.

'Radarsign has been very effective in reducing the speed of vehicles within the Park, creating a safer environment for our visitors' said Stone Mountain Park's Chief of Police and Fire, Chuck Kelley. 'Drivers enter the park from the interstate and for years, they'd continue at the same highway speed, despite the thousands of bikers, joggers and families walking near the roads. I used to have to post a police officer at each entrance in order to slow traffic. Now, Radarsign speed signs do the job for me. They are working 24/7, freeing up my officers to help the park's visitors. We couldn't be more pleased. You can actually see the speed reduction as drivers approach the signs.'

Speeding kills 1,000 Americans every month and the force of impact in a collision doubles with every 10 mph. Radarsign traffic calming solutions bring drivers' attention back to the road, and the posted speed limit, slowing them to safer speeds.

Three signs have been installed on the major roadways inside the park, which are travelled by millions of visitors annually. The first sign was installed in 2007, the second a year later and the third this year.


'Everyone within the Stone Mountain Park organization works very hard to ensure visitors have a fun and safe time while enjoying the everything the Park has to offer,' said Charlie Robeson, Director of Sales and Marketing for Radarsign. 'We're happy to help keep the roads safe from reckless drivers so visitors and Park employees can focus their time and attention on fun - not wrecks.'
