The problem with neighborhood traffic is typically the manner in which the neighborhood residents drive their cars with zero regard for their neighbors.
The report stated that during the week without the radar sign, half of the drivers were traveling between 41 and 50 mph. But once the sign was installed, 81 percent of the drivers were going at or below the posted speed limit of 35 mph.
MARIETTA A City Council majority supports dotting area roads with electronic signs that display a driver's speed in an effort to guilt or shock speeders into slowing down.

"Some of those streets just cry out for people to be aware of how fast they are going," he said. "Most people want to obey the law."
After months of searching for traffic calming devices and overwhelming requests from residents for speed humps, the council will make a final decision Aug. 14 about purchasing 20 radar speed signs for $79,500 using the 2011 special purpose local option sales tax.
We instead need to teach driving or driving so we Nike Air Max 95 Midnight Navy can get past this societal plague of behavior problems such as 45 mph driving in neighborhoods, people who refuse to merge or who weave, people who think their phone is more important than everyone else on the roads, and most especially all this road rage that is such a predictable outcome of the defensiveness inexplicably taught by our driver training programs.
intersection without a radar speed sign was monitored for a week at the beginning of February 2012, then again the following week after the unit was placed there.
So what do we do to get by for now until we can correct poor behavior resulting from generations of incorrect driver education?
City Council backing buy of 20 radar speed signs
Councilman Grif Chalfant said he supported the purchase and could name at least five locations that would be perfect, including Arden Drive and Longwood Drive in southwest Marietta off Powder Springs Street.
Councilman Anthony Coleman asked staff to create a list of streets that the Marietta Police Department suggests targeting.
Efforts to install those types of warning signals have been shot down by the council because of claims drivers will still speed, Sinclair said.
Sinclair questioned whether the uncomfortable feeling of being caught speeding by the radar sign will last as drivers pass the same unit over a long period of time.

City staff told the council another benefit is that the new signs would allow the city to download data to track peak times that speeding occurs on major roads.
The report provided what the public works department considers to be proof that the radar speed signs reduce traffic speeds, especially high speeds.
The city installed an electronic sign on Church Street as part of a median improvement project at Margaret Street, funded by WellStar.
The city already owns four radar speed signs, three of which were donated. One was purchased with funds from the 2005 SPLOST and is at Polk Street between the 120 Loop and Winn Street.
Sinclair compared the radar signs to types of pedestrian crossings that use "flashing lights to remind people how fast they are going."
The signs are moveable, which allows for flexibility, but because the large units are mounted to the ground, staff recommended not moving them more than every six months to a year.
The electronic signs are an alternative to speed humps, which the Public Works Department does not place on hills or curvy roads where the speed hump would not be visible to the driver.
