Drivers who speed beware, the City of Racine recently purchased new speed information signs to remind people to slow down and they are stepping up speed enforcement in several areas.
The Racine Police Department just installed new speed information signs in several high traffic areas. The solar powered signs allow the equipment to be relocated to meet the changing needs of the community, according to a press release by the department.
The signs have been installed in the 3300-3400 block of Erie Street and the 400 block of Ohio Street. The department already had a set of signs on Golf Avenue.
“In order to maximize compliance and promote safe driving habits, special speed enforcement patrol assignments will be scheduled in support of the installation of the new equipment,” the press release reads. “With the cooperation of the general public, we look forward to a safe summer where accidents are mitigated and public safety is enhanced.”
Bottom line, if you don’t want a speeding ticket, obey the posted speed limit. And stay safe out there.
