ATE Mobile Speed Enforcement

image2 (1)The Muscatine Police Department (MPD) made a presentation to the Muscatine City Council in May 2016 concerning the status of the Automated Traffic Enforcement program and the future  goals of the program. The prospect of starting a mobile speed enforcement program on roadways not controlled by the Iowa DOT was discussed.  Based on the discussion and feedback from the City Council, the MPD conducted trials with mobile speed enforcement in the form of a Chevy Sonic and a trailer. The equipment was provided by the current ATE partner, Gatso USA.  Based on the trials, the Chevy Sonic was chosen for mobile speed enforcement efforts.   

The focus of the automated traffic enforcement program has always been to improve the safety of the roadways for motorists and other users. Significant progress has been made at the intersections where static ATE equipment is currently operating. The MPD believes that the expansion to a mobile speed enforcement platform will bring similar results to a wider area of the city.

image3The MPD will routinely update the website to include location information on where the vehicle will be located. The locations will also be included on the City of Muscatine Facebook page. If you have a suggestion for where the mobile ATE should be placed, you may make a request using the Request Tracker. Choose "Excessive Speed in Neighborhood/Mobile ATE Request" from the options on the Request Tracker page.

Be sure to check back regularly to see where the Chevy Sonic will be placed over a one to two week period!
