MPD increases use of radar, laser devices

The Morgantown Police Department Traffic division will increase the use of radar and laser speed devices in upcoming weeks.
The speed enforcement initiative will be conducted throughout the city but will target specific locations. Target areas include South University Avenue (Don Knotts Boulevard), Dorsey Avenue, Patteson Drive, Burroughs Street, Collins Ferry Road, Evansdale, Laurel Street and University Avenue in Suncrest.
MPD would like to remind motorists to use extra caution monitoring the speed of their vehicles due to the weather and driving conditions improving. Also, they encourage motorists to pay close attention to speed limit signs and the increased presence of motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrian traffic.
