In this activity, citizen volunteers use radar to track speeds at a target location for one week for approximately one hour per day, at various times of day. The results are then recorded on a standardized form. Whenever possible, license plate numbers and vehicle descriptions are also recorded. We suggest a police officer accompany the citizen conducting the Radarwatch.
The police department then compiles this information and sends "friendly warning" letters to registered vehicle owners.
