City workers in Hayward installed some offbeat traffic signs on a street known for speeding cars. They’re hoping the signs will stand out from the old-style signs that everyone knows and ignores. They’re also cheaper than other traffic calming measures such as bulb-outs, speed bumps and roundabouts.
