We all know that speeding in our neighborhoods is dangerous for our families, friends and neighbors. And for anyone who is concerned about speeding and is willing to help solve the problem, getting accurate speed data is critical.
According to the Foundation for Traffic Safety, the average risk of death for a pedestrian is only 10% at a vehicle impact speed of 23 mph, but jumps to a 90% likelihood of death at 58 mph.
Now there’s a powerful new tool called Pocket Radar in the fight for traffic safety. Because police can’t be everywhere all the time, this device allows you to work with neighbors, watch groups or community organizations to easily collect speed data and share with your local police. By starting a Traffic Calming Program or just calling attention to problem areas to get help from law enforcement, you can help protect your neighborhood.
