The Willowbrook Police Department's speed trailer is currently available for use in neighborhoods, school zones, construction sites, and dangerous roads where the speed of vehicles could be a problem. This unit is a portable, self-contained speed display unit that is towed to sites experiencing speed-related problems. A specially designed radar is mounted inside the locked trailer, clocking speeds. Motorists see their speeds displayed on a highly visible LED (light emitting diode) display.
The speed trailer display reminds motorists to pay attention and SLOW DOWN. For those who refuse, warnings and citations can be issued by an officer who may decide to wait up the street for those violators. With fewer speed-related accidents, officers' time is freed up, and they can concentrate their efforts in other crime fighting ways. Plus, citizens feel safer, which is what compliance with the speed limit is all about: safety.
