One of the major complaints in traffic control is about vehicles speeding through neighborhoods. The Police Department takes these complaints seriously and is actively enforcing the traffic laws of Minnesota.
As part of an education program, the Inver Grove Heights Police Department along with South St. Paul and West St. Paul Police Departments purchased a traffic monitoring trailer. This trailer has a radar mounted in it with a large display window. When it is set up, the radar will display the speed reading of traffic that passes through the radar. The Police Department gets this trailer every third week, for a week at a time.
We keep a list of complaint areas and not only enforce the traffic laws, but try to educate drivers of their speed using the trailer. If you would like to see these trailers in your neighborhood, call the Police Department at (651) 450-2525.
