New Speed Trackers For Troy Borough (VIDEO)Laura Hutchinson December 11, 2008
TROY-- If you're a lead foot, you might want to slow down through Troy Borough.
Borough Council approved the purchase of a new ENRADD system to track the speed of cars using two special sensors.
Borough police used to use a stop-watch-like device.
The new system eliminates the possibility of human error, and also let's Borough officials pinpoint areas with speeding problems.
The sensors send the information electronically to a cruiser.
“If that is the case then we would advertise that we know we have vehicles driving fast on a certain street, and that we will be enforcing a speed limit within a certain time. That gives folks the opportunity to change their behavioral habits about their driving,” said Daniel Close, the Troy Borough Manager.
The new system cost the borough about $4500, plus an annual re-calibration fee.
