Section 3: Building an Effective Speed Reduction Plan:
3a - Collecting Your Data:
Can you identify if, where, and when speeding is happening?
There’s a simple way to keep track. Speed Tracker is a small, wireless data collector that gives you detailed stats on driver behavior and speeds that you can access online via SafePace Cloud.
If speeding is determined to be a problem on your streets, there are many ways to elicit change in driver behavior. At Traffic Logix, we provide a variety of solution packages to meet your multifaceted traffic calming challenges and concerns.
3b - Single-Layer Solutions:
Awareness is a powerful thing. Simply reminding drivers when they’re speeding has been shown to change the way they drive, even miles down the road.
Since all of our radar speed signs gather data, let’s take a look at how effective the single-layered awareness solution is and if more powerful and versatile solutions could suit your traffic calming needs better.
3c - Does Just One Layer Work?
In 2021, over 5,000 more radar speed signs were installed on local streets across United States.
What difference did we make nationwide 2021 vs. 2020?
With more Traffic Logix radar speed signs installed, speeding problems on local streets have been mitigated.
But are radar signs always enough?
Increase or Reduction in Speeders over 60 mph by State from 2020 to 2021
While radar signs are often an effective way to slow speeders, there are manyinstances when they aren’t sufficient in protecting local streets. If not installedcorrectly or when used to address speeding problems that require a moremultifaceted approach, they may not be sufficient to reduce top speeds.
Awareness + Enforcement or Awareness + Physical Traffic Calming
Speed cameras discreetly capture images from multiple lanes with pinpoint accuracy. When used with speed awareness signs, this solution package adds the element of warnings that can be issued by police or private communities as well as the ability to further target enforcement.
• One community saw a 91% reduction in speeders just 8 weeks after installing speed cameras.
• In another, maximum speeds were reduced by 10 mph while violations went down by 73%.
