Traffic Radar Trailer

The Flathead County Sheriff’s Office has a trailer-mounted radar speed display that can be placed throughout the county for monitoring traffic speeds. The location of the trailer is based on the previous history of motor vehicle accidents, frequency of speeding citations, and requests from the public.

Drivers approaching a speed radar trailer will see the posted speed limit displayed, as well as their speed as detected by the trailer. The trailer also records the total number of vehicles and their average speeds during the times it is monitoring traffic.

The speed radar trailer aids in educating the public — especially the driver who may be unaware of exactly how fast they are going. The use of our speed radar trailer strengthens our efforts to reduce speeding through education.

Please be aware that this service is for county roads and not privately maintained roads.
