Active Speed Monitors

Sign reads "Respect our Neighborhood Drive Responsibly Drive 25 mph"

Active speed monitors are permanent devices to keep drivers aware of their speeds and the need to slow down near schools. They are typically mounted on a speed limit sign and visually display drivers’ real-time speeds as they pass. Drivers see how fast they are actually driving compared to the posted speed limit. Some active speed monitors are solar-powered.
