Drivers approaching a Puyallup Police Department Radar Speed Trailer will see the posted speed limit displayed, as well as their speed as detected by the radar within the trailer. The trailer will also record the total number of vehicles and their average speeds during the times it is monitoring traffic. Radar Speed Trailers are placed in locations throughout the city depending on history of motor vehicle accidents, requests from the public and frequent speeding citations.
If you would like to request the Speed Trailer be placed in your neighborhood, you may make a request to the Traffic Unit by calling 253-435-3607 or click here to email the traffic unit. Each request is evaluated by the traffic unit sergeant and granted based on need and availability.
