You’ve probably seen a bunch of these things when driving down freeways in the United States. The city has started a $100,000 pilot project to show drivers how fast they are going in school zones. The signs will be properly placed off the road (unlike the image above)

The signs will display the current speed limit, as well as a radar equipped LED sign that shows the current speed you are doing. These should not be mistaken for photo enforced traps. These signs will not issue you tickets, but simply warn you that you are going too fast.

There will be 7 of these signs installed in the city. The first was revealed on Tuesday at Grant Avenue and Montrose Street.
