New Radar Units Keeping Roads Safe For You

 

You may have seen new radar trailers in town. Our Lago Vista Police Department is keeping you safe on the roads whether walking your dog, going for a run, or when the kids are playing ball out in the front yard.

 

As for drivers, LVPD would much rather offer drivers voluntary compliance than issue citations. This unit gives a friendly reminder rather than a ticket.

 

WHAT ABOUT THE DETAILS?

  • Two units were purchased from the State Funded Crossing Guard account.
  • No impact to City budget
  • No impact to citizen taxes
  • LVPD's older unit is more than 15 years old, takes 8 car batteries a year to power it, and did not record data.
  • The new units take two batteries, are partially solar powered, and record data for field studies which determine where officers need to intervene.

 

It's a win win for everyone!
