Coronado speed signs count goes up

The watch over driver speeds on the other side of the Coronado bridge started March with two new electronic speed sign trailers. The two easier to move signs powered by solar power increases the Coronado trailer sign count to four.

The two new signs are expected to work for longer. One trailer was put in on the roadway south of Glorietta Bay Park. The other sign on the westbound side of the Coronado Bridge near the toll plaza.

Hard to ignore, the electronic signs detect drivers speeds, and flash a driver's speed on the display to instruct the driver to slow down. Drivers driving faster than the speed limit see "SLOW DOWN".

Handling risks drivers face after a traffic accident is made easier by the signs. The signs warn drivers of alternative routes they can take to avoid having to pass the accident location.

Coronado traffic staff will count on the signs to give them speed information they can use to do statistical analysis of the speeds drivers drive.

This is a Center Line Policy Alert.
