Fox 31 KDVR-TV, Denver, Colorado Reports on Notorious Speeding Area -
Lakewood police are trying to find new ways to enforce the law inside an area where it is nearly impossible ton enforce the speed limit. A 2 mile stretch of 6th Avenue in Lakewood has earned its own nickname - "the shoots" - which is protected by high sound barrier walls making it nearly impossible to catch the speeders. It's an area where there is no safe place for officers to pull over speeding drivers or for police to stand with a radar gun. In this report it shows how the police have started using a highpowered long distance laser speed gun developed by Laser Technology to help step up enforcement in this area. The "shoots" is one of the busiest stretches in the metro area and also ranked in 2009 as one of the top 10 places for accidents.
Watch the video on how the police are trying to enforce laws in a notorious speeding area.
Take a look at Laser Technology's UltraLyte speed guns.
