Speed Enforcement Sign

Radar Trailer

The Speed Monitoring Awareness Radar Trailer (SMART) is currently available for use in neighborhoods, school zones, etc.

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, clocking speeds. Motorists see their speeds displayed on a highly visible lighted display. The speed limit sign above the display reminds motorists to pay attention and obey the posted speed limit.

An onboard computer collects information pertaining to date, time, and speed of each vehicle that passes it. As speed awareness goes up, motorists slow down, even after the unit is moved to a different location.

Any Oglesby resident or business owner may request to have the radar trailer placed in a location within Oglesby, where there is a perceived traffic safety issue related to speed.
