Here is a post from Reservoir Police Chief Perry Waggener:
I have been with the Reservoir Patrol/Police for 13 years and during that time and in my 27 years with Metro area Law Enforcement I have seen far to many automobile crashes in which the speed of the vehicle either caused directly or contributed significantly to the injuries and sometimes death. This agency has requested the authority to use electronic speed control devices for at least the past thirteen years with no success.
We once again will seek that traffic control tool this year. One might ask, why continue the effort. The answer is easy for me and has only strengthened my resolve. I was at the scene in May when Taylor Hartwell was removed from his car seat, strapped to a backboard for his ride to Blair E. Batson. I have followed his progress as he has had to learn to walk again after a traumatic head injury. The speed of the vehicle that struck the Hartwell's vehicle was a major contributing factor to the severity of his injuries. That is my motivation, the health and safety of the people of the Reservoir.
One final note for your consideration, a popular argument in fighting against electronic speed control is it will be used as a revenue tool. Please know the Reservoir Police Department is a state agency and as such, we derive no fine money revenue. All citations written by state agencies go through the Justice Court in which the violation occurred and any revenue goes into that county's general fund.
Your time in a response is greatly appreciated.
