RADAR / SPEED TRAILER AVAILABLE FOR USE IN SKAGIT COUNTY
Skagit County's RU2 Fast 950 Radar/Speed Trailer allows Skagit County to quickly and positively respond to citizen requests regarding speeding in our neighborhoods without placing an operational requirement on the requestor, as did our past Radar/Reader-Board Program. The Trailer is especially useful in the following ways.
To discourage citizens using the Trailer for testing "top speed" in their vehicles, the unit will flash Red and Blue lights instead of MPH if a vehicle travels more than 10 mph over the posted speed. Traffic Engineering will install the Trailer at safe locations in response to neighborhood and law enforcement requests. Placement of the Trailer may not be possible in all areas of the County. Acquisition of the Trailer was made possible in part by a grant from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission. If you would like to request deployment of the Radar Trailer, please fill out an online Service Request or call us at 360-416-1400.
