AYLMER POLICE SOLICITING COMMUNITY HELP FOR RADAR SIGN (submitted)
“The Aylmer Police are petitioning our community partners to sponsor and fund a mobile speed trailer. With your support this device will be an effective tool where speeding is a problem or concern. The speed trailer not only displays a motorists speed it also has analytical software that captures traffic patterns over a period of time. This plan serves multiple purposes:
- Community Speed Problem Awareness
- Speed Assessment;
- Systematic Speed Enforcement; and
- Police Resource Deployment
The trailer can be deployed in Community Safety Zones around Aylmer schools warning speeders while our children walk nearby. It can analyze speed in the unbiased absence of a police vehicle over a consistent period of time. Enforcement can occur in conjunction with the device in a problem area with little excuse from the offenders. Statistical analysis will determine efficient deployment of officers for enforcement. The Aylmer Police will maintain the house and maintain the unit. Its deployment may be requested externally or directed by police.
Device highlights include:
- an 18” LED display viewable 300 meters away
- secure weather proof trailer with folding display

So far $1200 has been raised. Contact Deputy-Chief Andre Reymer for more information.
