As a part of our ongoing efforts to ensure traffic and pedestrian safety, we have acquired a concealable traffic monitor to supplement the pneumatic tube unit that had been in use. The new unit is invisible to drivers and therefore eliminates any concern that driver behavior is changed by the presence of the detector. Results from this street monitoring will set location and time priorities for enhanced speed enforcement.
The program will survey traffic on streets with heavy use first, and then assess side streets. Each location will be monitored for a full week. The results of recent tests are posted below.
If you wish to request your street be monitored or to volunteer your property as a location to place the unit, please contact Chief Dacek at Adacek@chagrinfallsPD.com.
