Drivers approaching a speed radar trailer will see the posted speed limit displayed, as well as their speed. The trailer will also record the total number of vehicles and their average speeds during the times it is monitoring traffic.
The Police Department places the speed radar trailer in various locations throughout the City, depending on such variables as previous history of motor vehicle accidents, requests from the public and frequent speeding citations.
The use of a speed radar trailer aids in educating the public, especially the driver who may be unaware exactly how fast they are going. While traffic enforcement through visible patrols remains an important component of our overall traffic safety strategy, the use of our speed radar trailer bolsters our efforts to reduce speeding through education.
