Cole County Public Works announced in a Monday press release that the county recently purchased a radar trailer to be used for speed control on county roadways.

The Cole County Sheriff’s Department provided funding for the trailer. Cole County Public Works will place the trailer on roadways and the sheriff’s department will conduct patrols while the trailer is out.

The current plan is to rotate the trailer around the county approximately every two weeks. Higher compliant areas will be the primary focus, but the trailer can be expected to be anywhere in the county at any given time.

The trailer will notify oncoming cars of their speed and will flash red and blue if they are traveling at a rate higher than 5 mph over the posted speed limit. If citizens have any questions.
