Radar Speed Signs

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

Our radar speed signs are available as either trailer-mounted on a portable tripod stand.  ETC Hire’s radar speed signs are 100% powered by solar with no ongoing running costs.

Apart from helping control traffic speed, the radar speed sign also records 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.

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.

Applications of Radar Speed Signs on the Gold Coast and Brisbane

The aim of the Radar Speed Sign is to simply detect the speed of a passing vehicle and to display the corresponding message on the screen for the person in the vehicle to see. If the vehicle is travelling at a faster rate 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.
