How the speed trailer works:
The speed limit is posted at the top of the trailer. As a vehicle approaches, its speed is displayed in large, amber numbers next to the posted speed limit sign. If the approaching vehicle’s speed is excessive, the amber numbers will flash and strobes will activate. The flash and strobe are meant to draw extra attention to the fact that you are exceeding the speed limit, and need to slow down.
The Speed sign is extremely portable and is meant for more of the residential streets. The Speed sign can be attached to any existing street sign.
