GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Grand Junction Police have acquired two movable radar signs that tell drivers how fast they’re going, but they say they don’t plan to use the signs’ cameras to issue tickets.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reported Sunday (https://tinyurl.com/kkz4qr3) the signs will be used in areas that generate frequent complaints about speeding. They can be moved around as needed.

The signs have the cabablility to take photos of speeders, but police spokeswoman Kate Porras says the department didn’t buy them for that purpose.

She says the photo quality isn’t good enough to capture license plate numbers.

In addition to displaying the speed of approaching vehicles, the units can also track the number of speeders.



Police say they also plan to use the units in areas that have a lot of collisions.
