Eyes on the Street: Speed Indicator Sign Now Flashing at Speeders

5:29 PM CST on March 6, 2013

The Humboldt Park speed indicator sign on Division Street, which we reported yesterday was broken, has been fixed. The sign currently displays the speed when a driver is traveling at exactly 30 mph and flashes the speed when the driver exceeds 30 MPH. According to a CDOT staffer, the sign will be adjusted to always show the speed and flash when a driver exceeds 30 mph. This video shows how it works. The sign is placed after the first pedestrian crosswalk – which is unmarked – in the Humboldt Park safety zone.
