JONESBORO, AR(KAIT) – If you've ever wondered how fast you were driving, Jonesboro police have your sign.

On Thursday the department revealed its new radar speed display signs.  The signs, which can be placed at various locations around town, will monitor traffic, alert drivers to be aware of their speed and encourage them to use caution.

The department also purchased portable speed bump systems which can be used to slow traffic in unsafe areas.

The new equipment was purchased using money seized during drug-related cases, many of which are the result of traffic stops.
