One of the big draws of gated communities and HOAs is the safety and security that they offer their residents. In fact, gated communities often attract people who are concerned about safety, including retirees, those with young children or pets. In recent years, such vulnerable road users have become more at risk as the percentage of fatalities of people killed outside vehicles has increased by more than 50% from 20% to 32% of crash fatalities.
Slowing cars down to safer speeds can make the difference between life and death on local community roads. Slower speeds save lives. Driver feedback signs remind drivers of posted speed limits while alerting them to their current speeds. They have been shown to change driving behavior and sustain lower speeds even over time. Physical solutions such as speed cushions and humps are another effective way to compel drivers to obey posted speed limits. Speed cameras offer personalized warning templates to penalize repeat offenders on your roads.
