HERNDON, Va. – July 12, 2021 All Traffic Solutions awarded a SpeedAlert 18 radar message sign to the Town of Townsend, Delaware, and a Shield 12 radar speed sign to the Town of New Boston, New Hampshire Police Department through the company’s ATS Gives Back initiative.
Over the years, All Traffic Solutions found that police departments in smaller communities have a need for All Traffic Solutions signs but lack the necessary funds and do not qualify for grants. The ATS Gives Back goal is to bridge this gap. Each month the All Traffic Solutions team selects two police departments to receive radar feedback signs free of charge. ATS Gives Back recipients also receive a subscription to TraffiCloud®, All Traffic Solutions’ patented traffic device and data management system.
The Town of Townsend, Delaware has a population of about 2,600 residents that is continuing to increase, leading to higher traffic volume. Townsend has an elementary school located along its Main Street and has expressed a need for traffic calming support downtown.
“Main Street has a community elementary school, and we have recently finished a safe corridor project. The sign is desperately needed to provide traffic calming to this area. ” said Townsend Town Manager Anthony Mangeri.
New Boston, New Hampshire, has a population of approximately 2,500 residents. Although it is a rural community, it experiences a high volume of commuter and tourist traffic. Excessive speeding has increased along the six state-maintained roadways which run through New Boston, and in 2018 New Boston Police Department found that 77.9% of motor vehicle violations were committed by drivers residing outside of the town.
“We are very excited to be able to deploy this new technology within our community to the most problematic areas. By using the traffic calming device, as well as the option to collect data on vehicle speed and quantity, it will help us in our mission to provide the most safe and effective enforcement with limited resources.” said Sergeant Timothy Loveless of New Boston Police Department.
