HERNDON, Va. – October 15, 2021 All Traffic Solutions awarded a Shield 15 radar speed sign to Fort Indiantown Gap Police Department and a SpeedAlert 18 radar message sign to the Borough of East Bangor 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.
Fort Indiantown Gap is a National Guard training center located in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania. The Fort Indiantown Gap Police Department is a law enforcement agency comprised of 19 sworn officers that falls under the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Military Veterans Affairs. Speeding is a concern on the roads and highways that run through Fort Indiantown Gap, particularly because large military vehicles can create visibility issues for drivers.
“As a busy National Guard training installation, we have troop formations, military vehicles with limited visibility, and regular traffic throughout the post. The Shield 15 traffic sign will allow us to warn traffic of their speed while providing us data to better target traffic enforcement to keep our soldiers safe while training to protect our country.” said Fort Indiantown Gap Police Chief Jarrad Berkihiser.
East Bangor is a borough in Northampton County, Pennsylvania with a population of approximately 1,100 residents. Although east Bangor Borough is a small community, it experiences a high volume of commuter traffic on state routes that pass through the borough. With seven sworn officers, enforcing speed limits throughout the town can be a challenge. The SpeedAlert sign will be used as a force multiplier to reduce speeding, collect data, and help the police department prioritize enforcement.
“This sign will be a wonderful addition toward keeping the residents of East Bangor Borough safe by slowing down the vehicles traveling through. This sign will allow drivers to recognize how fast they are actually going and correct their speed if necessary. This sign will also allow the police department to collect the data and then focus on problem roads in town. We can’t thank you enough for this donation.” said Police Chief Robert Mulligan of East Bangor Borough Police Department.
