Berryville’s New Speed Monitoring Signs May Be Working

19 November 2018 Clarke County News


A new report is indicating that Berryville’s new speed monitoring signs may be working.

The four signs were purchased by the Berryville Police Department for $10,800, and are posted at the town’s North and South entrances on Buckmarsh Street and East and West entrances on Main Street. The signs detect the speeds of passing vehicles using radar, and flash the numbers at cars exceeding the limit. A report revealed during a Town Council meeting last week showed that traffic summonses issued for speeding dropped by around half over the course of late September and early October. Town Council member Donna Marie McDonald was quoted as saying that people living along Buckmarsh Street have told her they’ve seen a “noticeable difference” in speeding as well since the signs were installed.
