County signs give valuable insight into traffic speed and volume
These signs track drivers' speed around the county - and they show that motorists regularly go over the speed limit.
If you think people fly on certain roads, you are probably right. The first batch of speed reports from Pickens County show on key problem roads the average speed is over the speed limit and the maximum speeds recorded are scary.
If you have seen the signs on area roads that display your speed and flash when you are exceeding the speed limit, the sign has seen you too. The county has been following a protocol since December of placing the signs in areas where people call to complain about speeding or where they believe there is a persistent problem.
