A temporary dynamic speed display sign is a sign on the side of the road that shows the speed of a vehicle as it is passing by to give the driver a comparison to the legal speed limit.
The sign will flash and show the speed if a vehicle is going over the speed limit and will be steady if the vehicle is going at or under the speed limit. The actual posted speed limit is displayed on a sign below the dynamic speed display sign.
Studies and experience have shown that dynamic speed display signs reduce traffic speeds and increase speed limit compliance. For this reason, the City of St. Paul Public Works Traffic and Lighting Division has developed a program that rotates dynamic speed display signs at critical points for speed reduction throughout the City. One sign per ward will be available for placement and will be moved to a different location every 4 weeks.
