To remind drivers of their speed in residential areas, primarily around elementary schools and parks, the City of London continues to install speed and display boards on streets across the city.
Speed display boards are pole-mounted devices equipped with radar speed detectors and an LED display. The boards are capable of detecting the approaching speed of a vehicle and displaying it back to the driver.
When combined with a regulatory speed limit sign, a clear message is sent to the driver that they may be travelling too fast. The objective of the program is to improve road safety by making drivers aware of their speed.
As of April 1, 2019, four speed and display boards have been installed and will be rotated throughout London as part of the Public Education & Empathy Program (PEEP) program. Locations have been identified through the Active and Safe Routes to School program as well as feedback received from local residents.
