CHANTILLY, Va. –March 27, 2023 All Traffic Solutions (ATS) awarded a Shield 12 radar speed sign to the City of Morenci Police Department in Wisconsin through the company’s ATS Gives Back initiative.
All Traffic Solutions is committed to creating safe streets and neighborhoods across the country with our products and software. Over the years, ATS 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 by donating radar speed signs to communities in need each month. ATS Gives Back recipients also receive a subscription to TraffiCloud®, All Traffic Solutions’ patented traffic device and data management system.
The City of Morenci, nestled in Lenawee County, Michigan is home to over two thousand citizens. The city’s police department, composed of seven full-time sworn officers, was seeking assistance curbing excessive speeding exiting from nearby State Highway traffic that could endanger their residents and visitors. To assist in their need for safer streets, they applied for the ATS Gives Back program and were awarded a Shield 12 radar speed sign.
The Morenci Police Department has seen a massive decline in traffic speeds since they installed their Shield 12 radar speed sign. Chief of Police Donald Thompson attests to its effectiveness: “when we put it out it does slow down traffic when it flashed the speed they are going. The strobe light going off makes them think their picture is being taken so they really pay attention to it.” Additionally, it was strategically placed throughout neighborhoods for extra support against speeding; residents have provided positive feedback regarding roads being safer since the deployment of the Shield 12 sign.
