REQUEST FOR SPEED TRAILER
The Chesterfield Township Police Department remains committed to always listening and address the concerns of the people we serve. We encourage our community members to suggest where our Radar Speed Monitoring Trailer is utilized next!
This unit is a portable, self-contained speed display device that is towed to sites experiencing speed-related problems. A specially designed radar is mounted inside the locked trailer, displaying speeds in real time to passing motorists on a highly visible lighted display. An onboard computer records data, time, location, direction of travel, and speed of vehicles passing by the unit. The information recorded will assist our office with traffic counts and provide information as to when it is the best time to deploy an officer to monitor speeding vehicles in your neighborhood. The speed limit sign above the display reminds motorists to pay attention and obey the posted speed limit. As speed awareness goes up, motorists slow down, even after the unit is moved to a different location!
Please note: Requests will be addressed in the order which they are received. Some environmental restrictions may apply.
