Savannah city officials unveil new radar signs on Whitaker and Drayton streets
The radar signs are to help commuters, residents, and bikers.
The speed limit changes are the full length of Whitaker and Drayton Streets from Bay Street on the North to Victory Drive on the South. From Bay Street to Liberty Street on both Drayton and Whitaker the radar was added to the permit for 25 m.p.h. From Liberty Street to Park Avenue the speed limit has been lowered from 30 m.p.h. to 25 m.p.h. on both Drayton and Whitaker. From Park Avenue to Victory Drive the speed limit has been lowered from 35 m.p.h. to 30 m.p.h. on both Drayton and Whitaker.
Savannah Police Chief Roy Minter said his department would be strictly enforcing the new speed limit changes.
Stephen Henry, the Acting Director of the Parking and Mobility Department said that the new changes are designed to help engage drivers along the corridors.
“Just kind of entering into that auto pilot state these signs will help knock them out of that state engage them and get them to lower their speed,” he said.
