Traffic Survey

We can place our speed trailer or speed sign on the desired road and help bring awareness to our community by giving a visual reminder of your actual speed and the posted speed limit. At this same time we can gather information such as:

-* average speed
-speed in the 85th percentile (85% of the cars are going "?" this speed or slower)
- ** how many cars are utilizing the road (one direction only)
-at what time is the majority of traffic is using the road
-when are the highest speeds and most frequent violations occurring

This information can help our Traffic Unit and our Patrol Officers target specific areas of interest by accurately showing when it would be most beneficial to have officers present for enforcement.

* Radar is not certified for the issuance of summons
** Daily volume may fluctuate due to time setting on recorder and battery life

— As part of the traffic initiative for the area, increased enforcement may follow the ---
placement of the speed awareness device.
