FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Denver, CO -
In conjunction with a citywide effort to reminder drivers and pedestrians about traffic safety, Denver Police are preparing to roll-out two new speed trailers in northwest Denver’s Police District 1. The new equipment, acquired with the assistance of Councilwoman Judy Montero, will provide police with an improved tool to increase traffic and pedestrian safety.
The speed detecting trailers are portable and serve as a visual cue to drivers to increase awareness of their speed and driving habits. The portability of the units allows police to intentionally deploy them to known problem locations. Additionally, the new equipment records speed and time data allowing police to more clearly identify and understand problem locations where enforcement may be needed.
Denver Police District 1 Commander Paul Pazen believes the new trailers will increase public safety by encouraging voluntary compliance with speed limits in neighborhoods and busy thoroughfares in northwest Denver.
