SPEEDERS DETERRED BY SPEED-WATCH
A Speed-Watch was put into operation in Freeport on July 28, 1953.
This device consists of hollow rubber tubes stretched parallel across the road-way,
132 feet apart. At the curb end of each of these tubes a switch is attached
which leads to the Speed-Watch by electrical cables located several hundred
feet away. This in turn is connected to an electrical watch that records the
speed. As a vehicle passes over the first tube pressure of the motor vehicle
activates the mercury switch and starts the Speed-Watch in operation. As a ve-hicle
runs across the second tube the switch stops the clock and the speed of the
vehicle is registered thereon. If the motorist has exceeded the speed limit
of the Village of Freeport, "which is 30 miles per hour, he is stopped and a
summons is issued. The object of the Speed-Watch is to reduce speeding on
the highways in order to obtain a desired result, to wit: lesser accidents and
lesser fatal results therefrom.
Police Chief Elar reports that to date some 94 summonses have been
issued for speeding checked by this Speed-Watch. The system, he states,
tends to prove that the Speed-Watch has been a deterrent to speeding on our
Village Highways and has become a necessary part in our program to reduce
speed and promote safety.
