Radar gun idea makes national news

BRECKENRIDGE – Summit County Sheriff John Minor’s proposal to the citizens advisory committee to enforce speeding by giving residents radar guns has reached the national press. Minor told county commissioners Monday that he has turned down interviews with CNN, but the station is running the item as a scroll at the bottom of the screen in its news broadcasts. The item has also been picked up by the Associated Press .Minor said the matter is still in discussion, and he wants more community feedback before making a decision. He said a resolution will be reached by February 2005.If approved, volunteers would be given radar guns to clock passing motorists. Volunteers would have no contact with motorists, but would pass the license plate information on to the Sheriff’s Office.The motorist would then receive a letter from the sheriff asking them to slow down.
