In several communities around San Diego, I've seen (usually
solar-powered) automated radar-gun signs that show you precisely how
fast you are going, placed right next to a speed limit sign.

I'm not sure how effective they are.

Is this a hobby project for you?  Or are you hoping to give the police
enough ammunition to come and set up a periodic radar patrol?
