“The residents who live along the busy roadways really like the effect the sign has had in slowing down the traffic. The flashing strobe is really eye-catching!” – Chief Scott Fogel, Lehigh Township Police Department
CHANTILLY, Va. (PRWEB) February 10, 2023
All Traffic Solutions awarded a Shield 12 radar speed sign to the Lehigh Township Police Department in Northhampton County, Pennsylvania 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 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.
Lehigh Township Police Department serves the citizens of the township that is within Northhampton County, Pennsylvania. The police department has 12 officers to cover 31 square miles and 110 road miles for more than 10,000 citizens in their township. Most of those 110 road miles are rural, two-lane roads with many hills and curves. Lehigh Township Police Department has two major roads that are very dangerous for drivers, but with limited resources and lots of miles to cover, they are looking to use their new Shield 12 radar speed sign to collect data and help prioritize enforcement. Along with collecting data and prioritizing enforcement, they are looking to help mitigate speeding and encourage safe driving behavior.
“We have been using the Shield sign for the past few weeks and the residents who live along the busy roadways really like the effect the sign has had in slowing down the traffic. The flashing strobe is really eye-catching! The complementing TraffiCloud software makes it very easy to run reports and track the speeds on the roadways, so we are certain we are providing adequate service on the roadways that most need the attention,” said Lehigh Township Police Department Chief Scott Fogel.
