Residential communities frequently face the issue of unsafe drivers impacting the quality of life within their community. When drivers regularly speed or cut through neighborhood streets or apartment/condo parking lots, concerned residents will file complaints and expect the managing association to come up with a solution.
Managing associations are counted on by owners and residents to create and enforce rules that maintain a better living environment for all. However, up until now, most community associations had limited tools to address the issue of unsafe driving. Speed Patrol is here to give managing associations and neighborhood boards the tools they need to finally answer these complaints with an effective solution.
This page is the starting point for association boards, HOAs, and management associations to begin creating safer streets within the neighborhoods or communities they oversee.
Choosing the right Speed Patrol products, accessories and implementation strategy will help you achieve the most effective outcome. On this page, managing associations can explore the products that Speed Patrol recommends to best address their community’s unique situation. Also provided are tips for using the sign most successfully. Spend time exploring the featured articles and the Speed Patrol Articles page to learn more about the benefits of radar speed signs/driver feedback technology for communities.

Tips for Implementing Your Sign
Most often, Speed Patrol signs can be used the same way as other, temporary “Slow Down” sign seen on the side of the road. However, some cities regulate where, how, and what signs are placed near roads. It’s always a good idea to check local ordinances for guidelines.
If your city has restrictions, don’t worry! Instead, go to our Articles page for resources and information to share with your local municipality or police department to generate support/approval for the Speed Patrol sign.
