Electronic speed signs now on some city streets


New electronic speed signs are popping up in the city. At yesterday’s Development and Infrastructure committee meeting, members all agreed the signs showing how fast a car is going is a great way to educate area motorists and remind them to slow it down. The 5 new signs have already been installed at various locations and the plan is to move them every 6 months so that drivers don’t become used to seeing them in one spot and start ignoring them. The vehicles speed is shown on all five of the signs and 4 of them also flash an additional slow down message. The sign locations were chosen in conjunction with the Medicine Hat Police Service.
