The primary goal of the traffic unit is to promote traffic safety and reduce accidents.
We frequently receive notices from concerned citizens of cars speeding in various locations in the city. This helps us to identify and focus on problem areas. Our research has shown that speed-monitoring trailers are the most efficient and effective way of providing a more lasting effect on reducing speeding problems.
Motor Squad Functions
The Draper Police Department utilizes a "Motor Squad" in areas where traffic concerns are identified. These trained officers both take enforcement action and teach drivers how to be safer.
Submitting a Traffic Enforcement Request
Any time a complaint is received by email, phone call from citizens or city employees it is forwarded to the traffic sergeant. If it is a legitimate problem then we will meet with Draper Engineering to look at other options to reduce the problem. We will contact everyone who makes a complaint to clarify what the problem is and let them know what our remediation was.
