Radar trailers monitor speeds on Lodi streets
A radar trailer is placed along Elm Street near an elementary school on Wednesday, July 24, 2013, to remind drivers to watch their speed and allow Lodi police to monitor speeding in the area. The location by the school was chosen because classes begin Friday.

Radar trailers sit on the side of the road, displaying the speed of passing cars. Police use them around town in order to promote driver awareness. And often it’s citizens who determine where they go.
“They act as a reminder to people to slow down, and give us a chance to monitor traffic,” said Lodi Police Department Motor Sgt. Shad Canestrino.
