City of Melville Uses Courtesy to Remind Drivers to Slow Down

Posted on: Monday, 26 November 2018 at 12:00:00 AM

Drivers on the streets in the City of Melville will be getting a courteous reminder to slow down on local roads.

Three new interactive courtesy speed display signs have been installed as part of a program to reduce travel speeds, particularly in residential areas. The signs raise awareness of travel speeds, providing instant feedback on whether drivers are travelling above the posted speed limit.

Evaluation of the effectiveness of the signs in reducing speeds is planned, with early indications showing drivers are slowing down while the signs are in place.
