The RADAR Sign is attached to randomly selected or requested speed limit signs in neighborhoods and are used by the Fairlawn Police Department in the following ways:
Address citizen speed complaints
Educate the public of problem areas/concerns the Fairlawn Police are experiencing prior to setting an enforcement campaign.
Gather statistical data relating to speed, the volume of traffic by time of day, and/or day of the week.
The generated data is one of the tools used by Law Enforcement to validate or negate proposed traffic remedies.
If you are a resident and would like to request the RADAR Sign, please contact Sgt. Etapa, our RADAR Sign Coordinator, at the Fairlawn Police Department by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org, or, leaving him a message at 330-670-4333.
