Reply Parish on December 14, 2020 at 5:09 pm Thank you for your comment and the interest, John. We’ll pass on your thoughts to the team. These signs are portable and where there are approved places to install them we will do so. With kind regards. Reply Daniel Jose on December 14, 2020 at 6:19 pm I do question how effective these signs are and even wonder if they are counter intuitive! These signs certainly work for those who want to abide by the law, however, I believe they are ignored by the arrogant and become a target by the boy/girl racers to see how high up the scoreboard they can go – after all, we all know there is no consequences to be had if the sign flashes! Reply Parish on December 15, 2020 at 1:07 pm Thank you for your comment, Daniel. Just to explain, the signs do not actually register speeds above a level that we set, which should deter boy/girl racer type behaviour. We have evidence that the signs reduce average speed significantly and therefore that is a benefit to the community. Kind regards.
