As our community continues to grow, we have all
noticed an increase in the number of vehicles in our neighborhoods.
We also realize that the number of children playing in these
neighborhoods are increasing. While your Mountain Home Police
Bureau is making every effort to address speeding and other
moving violation concerns in your area, we find it sometimes
difficult to impact these concerns without your assistance.
In addition to our daily operations in traffic enforcement, the
Mountain Home Police Bureau has come up with a couple ways to
address these concerns with your help and support. The Smart Radar
Trailer, The Mountain Home Police Bike Patrol ( Radar Enforcement ),
and Enhanced Radar Traffic Enforcement, with our Motor Unit are all
contributing to local traffic enforcement.
RADAR TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT:
This is perhaps one of the most well known of
enforcement techniques and radar technology can accurately measure
the speed of an on-coming car. Methods of deploying Radar Traffic
Enforcement include, but is not limited to, our Motor Unit, Bike
Patrol, and Regular Patrol where time and resources permit.
Occasionally, we will use a speed trailer (a
trailer that flashes the speed to on-coming cars) to inform drivers
of their speed as a sort of a warning, and no citations are issued.
We often use the speed trailer when we get a complaint about
speeders in a specific area to see if the area warrants a radar
enforcement program. If there are a lot of speeders, we will
implement a radar enforcement program on a street to break a pattern
of people speeding on the street.
The Smart Trailer is equipped with
a radar gun and computer that records vehicle speeds, number of
vehicles, and time of day for each speed.
The Smart Trailer is used to
educate drivers of their speeds in various areas and to encourage
It also allows the Mountain Home Police
Bureau to conduct traffic studies to determine any changes
needed on a street, and to schedule various types of traffic
enforcement in the area.
