The speed trailer is now programmed to capture the license plates of vehicles speeding within the community. Speeders will be issued citations by mail. The RU2 radar mobile speed trailer will be used to help bring attention to speed control throughout the community and assist Community Patrol with issuing tickets for speeders in multiple locations.

The speed limit on the major streets, Canyon Lake Drive South, Canyon Lake Drive North, Vacation Drive, Continental Drive and Longhorn Drive, is 35 MPH. For all other streets, the speed limit is 25 MPH.

Any person who receives additional speeding citations within thirty-six months of a previous offense will be subject to a progressive fine. The progressive fine will be compounded for each additional offense.

The POA Board of Directors approved to ratify $17,043.60 from Capital Improvement funds for the purchase of the speed trailer, sales tax and DMV registration, at the Regular Session Board Meeting on Dec. 5.

The board also approved $6391.85 for dash-mounted radar units for Community Patrol vehicles. The units are calibrated before and after shifts. Residents who are pulled over by Community Patrol may review the reading on the dash-mounted system if requested.
