[ARCHIVED] Two shiny new radar trailers to help with neighborhood speeding issues

IMG_2898

Today, EPD took delivery of two radar trailers from RU2 Systems, Inc. (Mesa, Arizona). These trailers will have EPD signage affixed and then will be deployed to help combat neighborhood speeding issues.


The signage not only provides a heads-up to drivers of their speed so they are aware and can slow down, it also collects data. The trailer’s system tracks when a vehicle goes by and at what speed. From that data, EPD will be able to download reports that effectively show the scope and timing of speeding issues. For instance, that data can show the average speed at any point in the day. Then, if patrol or the Traffic Enforcement Unit resources are needed to help with a neighborhood speeding issue, the department will be better informed as to when the officer resources need to be put in place. The equipment does not capture data that results in citations.


Initially the deployments will be for 3-5 days upon request by neighborhood residents and this timeframe will be evaluated as the program continues.


The cost was $13,000 for two RU2 Fast 650 units, including shipping.


The Traffic Enforcement Unit number is 541.682.5851.
