Drivers in Livonia beware: You might get a reminder of how fast you drive around town starting this spring.

By David Veselenak

The Livonia Police Department is finalizing the purchase of a portable device that can detect and display speeds from motorists who pass by. The display, which can attach to street signs, is portable and operates similar to speed radar trailers.

The idea behind it, Sgt. Joe Boitos of the Livonia Police Department said, is to remind drivers to take it slow, especially in residential neighborhoods. He said those are the kinds of places he’s looking to place the speed radar device at various times of the year.

“We’ll be able to place the sign in any area,” he said. “It will display, so residents will be able to see for themselves how fast cars are going.”

The sign is being paid for through a grant the city received from AAA. The city council is expected to approve the grant acceptance and the purchasing of the sign at its meeting Monday night.

Currently, the city uses the speed radar trailers, and a permanent speed radar reader with a display is installed on Levan north of Five Mile, where drivers can get their speed on a sign posted above the current speed limit sign.

“This is definitely a step up from what we’ve had in the past,” said police Chief Curtis Caid at the previous city council meeting. “It’s not intended to be a permanent installation.”

New to this portable reader is the ability to take photos of vehicles, though state law prohibits using such photos to issue traffic citations, Boitos said.

“It’s just that extra reminder,” he said. “Now they’re actually seeing their speed and folks realize, ‘Oh, I am going a little high.’”

And once the speed radar reader is purchased, it appears there will be several civic association leaders lining up to have it temporarily installed along their streets.

Boitos said some areas of Livonia, including Old Rosedale Gardens, have expressed interest in having it placed along its streets.

“There are some neighborhood associations that are already aware that we’re getting this,” he said.
