The Marlborough Police Department’s Traffic Unit is asking residents who are concerned with speeding cars in their neighborhoods to use this feature to request a traffic enforcement post and/or speed radar trailer on their street.
Although having a Police Officer post radar on your street may deter the would-be traffic offenders, it will not eliminate their existence. This Police Department echo’s the concerns of its residents on this issue and want to make a difference in your neighborhood.
Speed radar trailers and speed radar signs can be deployed in various locations throughout the City of Marlborough, depending on such variables as previous history of motor vehicle accidents, requests from the public and frequent speeding citations. The use of a speed radar trailer aids in educating the public, especially the driver who may be unaware exactly how fast they are going. While traffic enforcement through visible patrols and traffic citations remains an important component of our overall traffic safety strategy, the use of our speed radar trailer and signs bolsters our efforts to reduce speeding through education.
