Police use digital signs to catch speeders

Posted: Updated:
ESSEX, Vt. -

Police are expanding their technology to monitor speeds on the roads of Essex.

New special speed signs have built-in radars to let drivers know how fast they're going and record and upload that data. The speeds are uploaded via cell data to a cloud server, where police can later review it and keep track of problem spots.  

"It will tell me when the officers need to be out there, when the greatest speed problems are and it allows us to prioritize our resources," said Sgt. Rob Hall with the Essex Police Department.

The signs have detected speeds as high as over 80 mph.

Essex’s speed signs were financed by the Governor’s Highway Safety program.
