SOUTH FORSYTH -- Charlie Robeson, co-founder and managing partner of south Forsyth-based Radarsign, has been named to the board of directors of a nonprofit that seeks to make metro Atlanta accessible to all pedestrians.
Robeson and other members of the Radarsign team have collaborated with the nonprofit PEDS since 2007.
Like PEDS, Radarsign works with government agencies, community organizations and others to increase pedestrian safety through the use of armored radar speed signs.
Sally Flocks, PEDS founder and president, praised the collaboration.
“Because Radarsign and PEDS share similar goals for street and pedestrian safety, we work with overlapping audiences,” she said in a statement. “Charlie brings a deep understanding of industry-specific opportunities and strengths to the board room.”
With government studies showing that a pedestrian is killed in the U.S. on average every two hours and injured every eight minutes in traffic crashes, officials said PEDS and Radarsign’s shared goal to make roads safer for pedestrians is important.
“It’s an honor to be able to add value in supporting the mission and vision of PEDS in a formal capacity as a member of the board,” Robeson said in a statement.
