More eyes are out on the streets in Polk County ready to catch drivers breaking the law.
“People tend to speed on this road,” says Chad Crabb.
The posted speed limit is 25 miles an hour.
“We see people sitting out on our porch going 40, 50 miles an hour,” says Crabb.
The father of two not only welcomes the extra enforcement, his wife asked the Sheriff’s Office to park one of the new mobile cameras in their front yard.
“I`m hoping that a lot of people will realize that this is a 25 mile an hour zone and slow down a bit,” he says.
Monday marked the start of Polk County’s 30 day grace period. If the camera clocks you at 11 over the limit, you can expect to get a ticket in the mail. Fines won’t start until next month.
“I’m not crazy about them,” says Kim Van Fosson.
Neighbors say they will like them a lot more if they get people to pay attention to the speed limit.
