Speed Sign Pella

A new speed sign is clocking speeds of drivers in Pella. The sign is currently located on East 8th Street and is checking and showing the speeds of drivers headed north on the road. Lt. Paul Haase says that the sign does not record any other data but speed, and won’t be used to issue tickets. He says it’s a good reminder for drivers to slow down in high traffic areas, and the data they collect will help pinpoint areas of speeding traffic in Pella. He says to contact the Police Department if you are interested in having the sign in your neighborhood, but says that could take time because they only have one to use.
