The Macedon Police Department is using radar to help slow down roadways where speeders have been an issue.
Administrative Sergeant Steve MacNeal, told RochesterFirst.com that a new Radar/Speed Trailer Request Program allows residents to alert police about problem areas.
One of those is Walworth Road in Macedon.
“Really it’s a quality of life issue for a lot of our residents in town,” he said. “Specifically, the home that we’re at today, he calls every couple of weeks because it’s just a chronic problem in this area.”
The program is straight-forward. “Essentially anyone can contact our office,” explained MacNeal. “They can call 9-1-1 and ask for an officer to stop out to their house or they can email us requests to either sit at their home and do manual radar with a patrol car and an officer or they can ask for the speed trailer.”
It’s not 100% effective, but allows law enforcement to keep a pulse on where issues are being experienced.
