TITUSVILLE, Fla. – The Titusville Police Department announced Tuesday that new digital LED sign boards will hit the city streets this week to promote safe driving.

Police said the project is designed to make intersections and roadways safer in the community. Speed enforcement trailers will show the speed of drivers and warn them when they are speeding.

The signs can also be used to display traffic warning messages.

The project comes after an evaluation of intersections and roadways where accidents are common because of speeding cars.

"This is another great chance to use technology to help promote our overall traffic safety efforts," Chief John Lau said. "These LED display boards are solar powered and need very little serving."

Speed enforcement trailers are currently on State Road 405 and Hickory Hill Boulevard.

The three speed enforcement trailers were bought with forfeiture funds -- money seized from criminals and put back into the community for crime prevention and safety initiatives.
