slowing down on King St

In my brief observation on Monday afternoon the signs appear to be slowing traffic down. The sign facing traffic coming from i495/Union St did not have the flashing lights going. Vehicles as they approached were hitting 45 plus MPH and then slowing as they realized what the sign meant. One vehicle slowed quickly and so much, the vehicle behind it started tooting.

The sign facing traffic coming from RT140/Summer St did have the lights blinking and for the most part was also slowing traffic.Traffic in this direction seemed to hit 40 as a max and then slow down.

I cropped the photo exclude the vehicles and license plates. My survey was purely unofficial.
