Radar Speed Signs

Put safety first with our radar speed signs and traffic management hire equipment

We have affordable Australian-made radar speed signs available for hire locally and throughout South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales.

Our radar speed signs are available as either trailer-mounted on a portable stand.  A high resolution LED screen mounted on top of an easily transportable trailer. ETC Hire’s solar radar speed signs are 100% powered by natural light and there are no ongoing running costs. This makes these signs a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution to reduce driver speed.

In conjunction with controlling traffic speed through automated signage, the radar speed sign has also been designed to record driver speed. This valuable data can be used to determine if  traffic lights or other traffic control equipment is needed on a permanent basis to keep driver speed under control.

This automated model was designed and built in Australia to improve the safety of both road workers and motorists.



Applications of radar speed signs

Radar speed signs are designed to detect the speed of passing vehicles and display the corresponding message on the screen for the person in the vehicle to see. If the vehicle is travelling faster than the speed limit, the LED sign will appear with a “sad face” plus the relevant speed limit, followed by a “slow down” message to remind drivers that they need to reduce their speed. In contrast, the sign will display a “smiley face” if the vehicle is travelling at the correct speed limit or less.
