See a speeder? Now you can report them on-line
By Scott Ray Daily Herald Staff Writer
Posted May 12, 2003
The Lake in the Hills police department is making it easy for residents to report minor traffic violations via the Internet in an effort to keep village neighborhoods safe.

Concerned residents have responded to the program, which started just a few weeks ago, about cars speeding through their neighborhoods while their children are at play.

Now if residents have a concern they can log on and e-mail their complaints directly to police, so they can then better determine if extra patrols are needed in certain areas.

The program, set up by the department's traffic safety unit, has been part of an ongoing effort to improve communication with residents, according to Sgt. Eric Decker, supervisor of the Lake in the Hills traffic unit.

"With the new mode of communication, we hope residents and police can solidify a working relationship to make the village the safest place it can possibly be," he said. "Instead of having officers come out to complainants' homes or residents coming into the department to fill out a complaint, they can just send an e-mail at their own convenience."

Police believe this will save the department and residents time and free up more time for patrol in areas with repeated problems.

"We can only be at so many places at a time," said Decker. "Any input from the residents is greatly encouraged."

To report a complaint, log on to www.lith.org and click on the "click it or ticket icon." All e-mails are anonymous and are read on a daily basis.

The traffic unit has been placing automated speed trailers in various spots throughout the village to make drivers more aware of their speed.

With input from residents police can now better patrol neighborhoods and put trailers where they would go to the best use, Decker explained.

Residents that don't have Internet capabilities can still call the police department about any concern they may have.

"We're just trying to open up another line of communication to better serve the community."

I think that is a good idea. Far too many kids in my area riding and playing in the cul-de-sac and some loser in a wanna be race car civic turns in and realizes its a dead end and screams the tires to quick turn and floor it out of there to be cool. It gets old quick.

In general an ok idea. After all you can phone in the same problem. The problem is that automated speeding tickets from the "trailers" is likely just around the corner. The revenue stream is just too tempting.

Now if we do this just right we can send the cops away from the LITH route and get speed trailers set up on the route.

Actually they tried this one of the highways (can't remember which one, I think it was Jersey Turnpike) and all 3 trailers disappeared.

I hate it when that happens!

Next they will have stings with cameras watching the cameras.

If you look close you'll notice they chain them to a pole or something to make it harder to grab.
