MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. – A traffic radar trailer in Macomb County was vandalized and is no longer functional, according to officials.
Officials said the trailer costs approximately $9,000 to replace. It was parked in Harrison Township on Memory Lane, near Ashland Street.
Officials said they receive traffic complaints and put locations of the complaints on a list where they then deploy the trailer. The trailer records the amount of vehicles on that road and their speed.
That information is used to help decide which areas are a priority to deploy deputies, officials said.
“With the senseless loss of this tool, traffic enforcement will become difficult in residential areas, where our children often play,” officials said in a Facebook post.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Morgan at 586-783-8192.
