The Salem public safety officer should soon be on roads in the town checking the speed of drivers.

The town purchased radar speed detection equipment two months ago. David Shortess, public safety officer, said Tuesday he expects the enforcement to begin in about a week.

Town administrator Patrick Casey said this week that natural areas for increased enforcement would be near Trevor School on Highway C and near Salem School, on Highway 83. The equipment will be able to be used, however, anywhere in the town.

The town has budgeted for increased revenue in 2010 from fines in anticipation of the increased enforcement activity, Casey said.
