Chief Francaviglia along with the Hillsdale Police Traffic Division are proud to announce their "Solar Traffic/Pedestrian Safety Initiative".
The new stop signs placed at Washington Avenue and Kinderkamack Road, two new pedestrian crossing signs at Hillsdale Avenue and Yesler Avenue and Broadway and Park Avenue, and a school/speed radar sign at Ruckman Road and Watson Place have all been outfitted with solar panels that will illuminate the signs with LED lights twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. The radar sign at Ruckman Road and Watson Place will be activated during school days 7:15am to 4:15pm, so remember 25mph through all school zones!
These signs are one hundred percent powered by solar energy and will promote a safer environment for everyone. The LED lights around the signs will allow drivers and pedestrians to see them at all hours of the night and through all types inclement weather. This initiative will also be placing a radar sign on Broadway just north of Orchard Street in the near future.
