Traffic enforcement can be a major concern for residents, as well as law enforcement. Precinct 5 deputies routinely run traffic to deter violations, however, at times it may become necessary to supplement these efforts.
The Precinct 5 speed trailer initiative is a tool used to accomplish just that. We will deploy a speed trailer to approved areas (see below) for one week, during daylight and early evening hours only. During this week, deputies may still make traffic stops and issue warnings or citations, however, in the days following the trailer's placement, Precinct 5 motorcycle units will be on location to focus on continued violations.
What is the criteria for a speed trailer's placement?
It happens all the time. A person gets pulled over for speeding and at some point will ask the deputy,"Don't you have something more important you should be doing?" The answer is "No."
Speeding drivers are extremely dangerous and are one of the most common causes for Texas car accidents. If drivers would slow down and obey the speed limits, many lives would be saved.
