Milledgeville Speed Monitoring Trailer The Milledgeville Police Department routinely receives complaints about speeding motorists. We take these complaints seriously. Our goal is for all motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists to be able to travel throughout the City of Milledgeville safely. One of the tools we use to help combat the speeding problem is a Speed Monitoring Trailer.
The Speed Monitoring Trailer is a portable device which measures the speed of cars as they approach and flashes the driver's speed as they pass the trailer. The trailer utilizes a computer which collects data that can be analyzed to identify the severity of the speeding problem and the worst times for speeding. This helps the department deploy limited resources more efficiently.
