Enradd – Bucks County Law Enforcement’s new weapon
Does your Bucks County speeding ticket have the letters “enradd” written on it? If so, you have been caught by one of the newest devices for fighting speed now being used by many local Bucks County police departments.
Local Pennsylvania police officers are not permitted by PA law to use radar when apprehending someone for speeding, as only Pennsylvania State Police officers are permitted to use radar.
For many years now local Bucks County police officers have been using a stopwatch or a system called Vascar to time a vehicle as it passes two white lines painted in the street. Many informed drivers know to slow down when they see the painted white lines on a Bucks County road.
Police departments throughout the Commonwealth are now using the Enradd system. This speed timing device has been approved by PennDot for use by local PA police officers. The Enradd system consists of two pieces of equipment placed on either side of the road.
When a car passes through the Enradd “zone” the speed of the vehicle is measured electronically (without the use of a human operating a stopwatch) over a distance of only 3 feet. The Enradd system broadcasts information about the vehicles speed wirelessly to a police officer. This enables the police officer to better disguise his or her presence.
Many drivers do not even know they passed through an Enradd speed trap because the Enradd system looks like two thin pieces of metal on each side of the road.
