Watch your speed!

According to Pete Summers, UPD dispatcher, UAA has had radar gun capability for two or three years, but only recently have speeding tickets become prevalent. Speed signs have been posted in areas aroundcampus including the ESB lot. Deputy and Chief Jim Milne said signs used to not be posted with the speed limit of 20 mph in the campus area. Milne said the signs are now posted in plain view at the entrance of the campus.

"If they don’t see it and it’s posted, then it is their fault not mine, now that it is posted we can hold them to a standard." Milne said.

UAA has recently received a new model radar gun called the Talon Traffic Safety Radar that shoots in both directions and works both mobile and still. Not all the UPD officers have been trained to operate the radar. According to Officer Endecott, Sergeant Swartz is to instruct officers around the middle of Aug. on how to operate the radar gun.

"We just want to keep it safe," Officer Endecott said.
