A new plan to bring speed vans to Albuquerque is moving forward. City Councilor Klarissa Peña, a sponsor of the initiative, says this is a big step.
A parked van or trailer uses a radar to detect speed and take a picture of a speeding vehicle, then sends the driver a citation by mail. Violators face a fine of $100, but the city is considering alternatives.
"We're also looking at how we can do community service if people can't afford it,” Peña said.
Although the city wants to crack down on speeding as soon as possible, it has taken time to involve the community in this decision-making process.
