The De Soto Police Department has deployed a speed trailer at the north edge of town encompassing the entrance to DeSoto and the I-80 Interchange.
The De Soto Police Department was a 2016 Dallas County Grant Recipient for their speed trailer.
The goal of the project was to improve the overall safety of roads in De Soto by reducing the speed of individuals traveling on the roadways.
With the help of the speed trailer they have been able to slow the overall traffic and cause people traveling through the city to be more mindful of their speed.
The DeSoto Police Department plans to continue the project for the foreseeable future. Experience from the past year will allow them to better plan sites for the speed trailer and possibly using the trailer for different traffic enforcement projects.
