Madison’s newest corporate neighbor, Realogy, has donated a portable radar speed sign to the borough police department.

"We hope other companies will follow suit and donate additional signage to keep our town roads’ speed limits front and center for drivers, and we commend Realogy for taking a stand,” Madison Police Chief Darren Dachisen said.

As a Madison resident, I hope other companies join in and take part in this. It sounds wonderful.

It is a nice gesture. Maybe another one (or 2) can be installed on Greenwood Ave near Brittin Street.

How much does a portable radar speed sign cost? As a resident of Greenwood Avenue, I'd contribute towards one and ask my neighbors and CAS & MJS parents to also contribute.

We all know that the majority of the drivers ignore all posted speed limits and have no concern for their fellow human beings behind the wheels of other vehicles or walking on the side the road. So, although this is a nice gesture, it does nothing to slow down drivers.

These signs really don't do anything other then blink when your speeding ... It makes the driver aware they are speeding but it won't stop them

I remember when they had that big tow away radar sign on Woodland all the time. Seemed like it's only use was for speeders to see how fast they were going. Useless…….

. . . . but it makes for a great photo-op. Also is a great location, tells people how fast they are going as they LEAVE Madison.

and the speed limit goes up to 45 as soon as you cross into Florham Park too.
