It's a sign telling drivers that the police are checking your speed by radar.

This usually stand for mobile speed checking (not at the same place). It's a different sign for static radar –  grunk Jan 17 '14 at 7:54
@grunk It actually signal static radars, replacing the previous sign that was installed closer to then. Mobile radars are rarely signaled. –  jlliagre Jan 17 '14 at 8:38
