The Macon County Sheriff's Office is committed to safeguarding the neighborhoods and communities within Macon County. Speeding drivers on neighborhood streets is one of the most common complaints received by our office. In an effort to bring speed awareness up, an Onsite Radar Speed Trailer was purchased for use within the county. The radar speed trailer is a speed monitoring device that is stationed in areas reference speeding complaints.
The Macon County Sheriff's Office will be placing a radar speed trailer in various locations throughout Macon County, depending on previous history of motor vehicle accidents, frequent speeding citations and requests from the public. The use of a radar speed trailer aids in educating the public, especially the motorist who may be unaware exactly how fast they are going. While traffic enforcement through patrols and traffic citations remains an important component of our overall traffic safety strategy, the use of our new radar speed trailer will improve our efforts to reduce speeding through education.
