Wanco Pole Mount Radar-Speed Signs show vehicle speed and warn motorists to slow down by flashing their excessive speed. They are often deployed in school zones, neighborhoods and accident-prone areas — locations where obeying the speed limit is critical. Wanco offers two sizes of electronic LED speed displays for small and large roads. The signs can be either hard-wired to commercial power or battery-powered with an automatic solar-based charging system.
