New Radar Detectors
The City of Gainesville installed two electronic radar detectors on the busy Northwest 22nd Street. The road is a connector between University Avenue and Northwest 16th Street.
They come with a $2500 price tag.
But Gainesville police say speeding isn't a major issue in that area.
"There are several thousand trips a day on this roadway. We've never really had a diagnosed speeding problem on this road," said Gainesville Traffic Safety Team Sergeant Joe Raulerson.
But residents disagree. They say drivers fly down the road at all hours.
City commissioners say a traffic study was conducted before the detectors were in place and another will likely be done in about six weeks. If the detectors prove affective, you may see more hitting the streets.
