City Experiments with "Your Speed Is" Speed Radar Signs

Maintenance and Operations employees in yellow hi-visibility shirts install new "your speed is

The City of Arlington recently installed "Your Speed Is" speed limit signs on Cemetery Road. The new signs are an experiment to see how well they work in reducing speeds in an area where the City has received complaints about speeding. City staff will be monitoring the speed data gathered from the signs and comparing it to data collected in late 2018. If the signs are effective in reducing speeds, we will be considering their use in other locations around the City.

The City has already conducted a number of speed studies in response to requests from residents and businesses to increase patrols for speeding. These studies can be conducted both covertly and openly, depending on what type of equipment we deploy. You can see the results from these studies on our website. If you are interested in the City deploying speed monitoring equipment in a neighborhood we have not yet monitored, please contact us at info@arlingtonwa.gov.
