Traffic Survey: In response to ongoing concerns of speeding and overloaded trucks on NW Sunset Road, I requested the assistance of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Team for directed enforcement efforts. I also set up a radar trailer on the street to survey traffic patterns and verify the speeds of the traffic on the roadway. The results of the survey are below and indicated that the average speed on the roadway was approximately 25 mph. 

The survey clock was set 12 hours off of the accurate time, as you study the traffic numbers please take that into account.
