Yesterday, we joined the Long Island Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO and hundreds of our union brothers and sisters to hold Representative Kathleen Rice accountable.
Concerns are growing over the Trade Deal, especially surrounding the proposal of a Fast Track Authority. We are urging Representative Rice and others in Congress to hear workers’ views on the matter and vote NO to Fast Track and NO to the TPP. Many courts have held laser may not be used past 1,000 feet due to the possibility that part of the laser beam might strike an adjacent vehicle.
Many times on the stand the officer will be asked the specific speed they visually observed a suspect vehicle prior to taking enforcement action.

SML does not sell Jamar products.


The focus of the study is to determine if the ban has reduced accident i??and fatalities in school zones. When seat belt legislation was first passed it was viewed legally as a secondary offense meaning the officer could not make a traffic stop for the infraction. The Chicago Police Department presented a PowerPoint presentation of training and use of laser systems by the Department. The focus of the study is to determine if the ban has reduced accident and fatalities in school zones.A  TSU intends to use SMLa€™s long term study of cell phone use in school zones in Illinois, Colorado, and Texas completed in late 2009. Both research projects will be combined for national publication in police and public safety publications.A  Analysis has been made in Mississippi, Alabama, and Colorado. The Annual Test will take place in El Paso on a test course SML has used for the past ten years.
Both El Paso and Las Cruces enacted city-wide bans on hand held cell phone use while driving in early spring of 2010. Digital Ally has renamed the new entry Laser Ally.A  See Digital Allya€™s website for specifications and details about the new entry. The research also reported the findings of the Institute of Transportation Engineers as they found in their research, Environmental, Driver, and Vehicle Risk Analysis for Freeway Work Zone Crashes a 26% increase in work zone crashes can be expected in work zones in Florida. Unique to the instruction, was the use by all officers of their new laser guns and radar guns. Several law enforcementi?? agencies will be operating old and new radar and laser systems against new introductions from the radar detection industry. Many state legislatures are considering state-wide bans on cell phone use while driving while others have restricted texting while driving upon different age groups.A  SML is under contract with Texas State University as a Traffic Safety Consultant assisting the University with various grants targeting the compliance with cell phone restrictions within the state of Texas. Several law enforcement agencies will be operating old and new radar and laser systems against new introductions from the radar detection industry.
In January she signed a letter showing her support for American workers by opposing the global trade deal known as the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). If passed, Fast Track legislation would speed-up the process of voting by barring our representatives in Congress from their ability to view, debate or amend any part of the proposed trade deal.
Scoring was determined by four criteria all with a maximum value of 100 each being: testing, field exercises, class participation, and a student graded presentation.
Units of the El Paso ISD Police Department and several officers were highly visible in the same school zone of Beall Elementary School on Piedras Street in El Paso.
This department is a national leader in offering service to citizens who complain about speeding in their neighborhoods.
Part of the activities require officers to conduct field surveys of estimating the speeds of 100 vehicles and the distances of 50 vehicles.A  The courts have held a Valid Visual Tracking History is necessary before the officer verifies the actual speed of the target vehicle with a radar or laser speed assessment system. Scoring was determined by four criteria all with a maximum value of 100 each being:A  testing, field exercises, class participation, and a student graded presentation.
It gives helpful hints into what officers must know when they testify.A  With the poor economy, more and more speeding citations are being challenged in court. Once the Jamar Speed Enforcement Evaluator is removed, many times Radar In Use signs are put up. SMLa€™s role was to describe to the members the history of lasera€™s use by law enforcement, present a summary of legal cases from around the country on laser use by law enforcement, and a description of the scientific principles involved in laser assessment of speeds. Las Cruces recently passed a ban on all hand held cell phone use in the city of 100,000.A  El Paso, Tx, some 45 miles away passed a similar ban by a city council vote of 5-3. It further intends to use SMLa€™s research of compliance with the new law related to enforcement of the legislation. Such a listing is necessary to compile reliable data on cell phone use before and after causation. SML intends to expand the sample size to include New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona in the final analysis. By attaching speed displays to patrol units via a standard 2a€? trailer hitch, many objections of speed displays are eliminated.A  The use of radar trailers is cumbersome and requires a spot to set them up.
The TruCam also features a built-in GPS module along with video capability.A  Other attempts have been made to mate a digital camera with laser guns. Officers will also be required to estimates speeds and distances of vehicles in the establishment of a valid visual tracking history. Of special interest this year will be the evaluation of the new GPS system combo unit introduced by Escort Inc. The research also reported the findings of the Institute of Transportation Engineers as they found in their research, Environmental, Driver, and Vehicle Risk Analysis for Freeway Work Zone Crashes a 26% increase in work zone crashes can be expected in work zones in Florida.A  SMLa€™s research also found in California, California Research Project No. Among the sample only 3 vehicles were at or below the speed limit of the 992 assessed vehicles.A  The best performance came from Arkansas where 147 vehicles of the sample size of 996 vehicles were traveling at the posted 60 mph interstate work zone speed limit.
Officers reviewed court cases where departments had not re-certified equipment, had no training, and did not follow the manufacturer specified set up procedures for radar and laser systems. Of special interest this year will be the evaluation of the new GPS system combo unit introduced by Escort Inc.A  The Escort iQ is a standard GPS system allowing drivers to mark dangerous locations such as school zones, work zones, or other locations presenting dangerous conditions. This weekend she changed her mind and publicly announced that she will be supporting the trade agreement.
All officers were requested to bring with them to class the Operators Manual of their radar or laser gun provided by the manufactureri??. These officers were told to turn on their Stalker II, Ka band radar units at 34.7 GHz and leave them in the constant transmit mode. Citizen complaints about neighborhood speeding are at the top of the list of calls received by dispatch. All officers were requested to bring with them to class the Operators Manual of their radar or laser gun provided by the manufacturer.
The percentage of drivers on their phone in the school zone was 6% and 58.8% of school zones drivers were at or below the school zone speed limit of 15 mph. SML also presented to the members Illinois use and legislative approval of laser based photo systems used in Illinois work zones per the legislature approved law 625 ILCS 7-Automated Traffic Control Systems in Highway Construction and Maintenance Zones. Radar Signals replaces the newsletter Radar Waves.A  Radar Waves is updated every three months.
With laser guns, SML recommended to the court a Daily Laser Verification Log be kept by all officers using laser guns for speed enforcement.A  This log contains daily checks of the laser gun before it is put into speed enforcement use and includes a Known Distance Test and Vertical and Horizontal Sight Alignment test.
However, these attempts have been bulky and heavy.A  The TruCam gives police agencies evidence of speeding inA  a compact package easily used by one officer.
991438, a study of thirty-six California work zones produced an increase in injury and fatality crashes of 21.5%. In Arkansas the normal speed limit was 70 mph compared to Texas at 60 mph.A  The total sample size of all assessed vehicles was 4,413 vehicles. In some of these instances, the citations given were dismissed by several courts.A  A historical review was given as to the necessity of conducting daily tests for accuracy of both radar and laser guns citing Aguilera v.
The iQ GPS features an Over Speed Alert notifying drivers if they are over the posted speed limit.A  The iQ also features preloaded locations of red light cameras nationally.
Officers were also required to log and demonstrate the correct set up procedure of each device including checking the accuracy of transmission using tuning forks in the case of radar and establishing and shooting a Known Distance and Vertical and Horizontal Sight Alignment with laser.


The research wanted to see if the addition of radar in school zones would have any effect of speeds driven.
2d 225, the court ordered the a€?officer must be able to establish that the target vehicle was within the beam widtha€? at the time of the infraction. Officers were also required to log and demonstrate the correct set up procedure of each device including checking the accuracy of transmission using tuning forks in the case of radar and establishing and shooting a Known Distance and Vertical and Horizontal Sight Alignment with laser.A  Both of these external tests were logged by the officers for potential use as proof the device was operating properly.
The research wanted to see if the addition of radar in school zones would have any effect of speeds driven.A  We also wanted to see if the percentages changed of drivers on their cell phones while in the school zones.
Officer Joy Mickendrow of the Neighborhood Enforcement Team was in charge of the program before she was promoted to detective.A  However, the program continues. SML called for a standardized training program with strong recommendations on re-certification of tuning forks, radar and laser guns, and officers.
Police laser guns are distance measuring devices first patented for police speed enforcement use by Laser Technologies Inc., LTI, in 1989. All of these assessed work zones had different work zone speed limits ranging from 50 mph-60 mph. A unique feature of the TruCam is DBC or Distance Between Cars.A  This feature automatically monitors a lead vehicle and trailing vehicle to report if the trailing vehicle is traveling too close to the lead vehicle resulting in a citation. A third criteria will be the officers presenting to the class a thirty minute presentation for evaluation.
Further, the Ohio Department of Transportation in their report: Work Zone Process In Terms of New Federal Work Zone Regulation-Historical Analysis, reported a 33% increase in accidents in thirteen measured work zones in a before work zone designation and after placement of a work zone designation at the same location. It is clear from this research and others that the closer the posted speed limit is to the actual speed of vehicles traveling, the higher the compliance rate.A  Considerable time was spent in consideration of placement of permanent or mobile mounted speed feedback displays in work zones to control speeding.
Florida, 1979 as a national benchmark case in the development of national standards for performance of both radar and laser speed assessment systems.
The internal test button of both radar and laser guns do not measure the accuracy of the transmission of each device and should not be used a prima facie evidence of the correct operational accuracy of each device.A  Departments should establish their own standards on officer training, certification of officers, and time periods for re-certification of equipment including tuning forks. El Paso is unique in that the City Council of El Paso passed and adopted a city-wide Ordinance No. First, most of these complaints are based on the noise of drivers.A  Unfortunately, most of citizens confuse the noise made by drivers as speeding, when it is not the case. A warning letter is then sent to the driver on Las Cruces Police Department stationary telling them they were observed speeding.
The first police laser was sold in 1991.A  Laser for laser enforcement has been with us longer than the internet. Females were twice as likely to be on their phones in both groups compared to male drivers. All work zones were on interstate highways with speed limits ranging from 70 mph to 60 mph before and after the work zone speed limit.
Among the sample only 3 vehicles were at or below the spei??ed limit of the 992 assessed vehicles.
Hall and Lorenz as published in Road Management And Engineering, related a 33% in New Mexico interstate accidents among the same locations before and after work zone designation. A thorough discussion was given into various state attempts to dissuade drivers from exceeding posted work zone speed limits including large fines and potential jail time for offenders. Increasingly, SML is receiving requests from varying governmental agencies regarding conducting Master Instructor Radar and Laser Instructor courses at their locations. A good rule is to use the same training and re-certification requirements of the state police agency within an individual state. The After percentage of drivers at or below the posted speed limit changed significantly with 96.8% of drivers driving at or below the 15 mph school zone limit. The first working laser was introduced by Theodore Maiman in 1960 and was immediately put into use by NASA measuring the distance from the earth to the moon and determining the speed of rotation of both celestial bodies.A  As a result of SMLa€™s testimony, all defendants were found guilty and the court issued judicial notice on all laser and radar speed enforcement system used by the departments. SML reviewed research from various state DOTs and federal agencies all agreeing drivers drive the speed they feel a€?reasonable and prudenta€? regardless of the posted speed limit.
Tuning forks are not interchangeable and must stay with the radar gun as delivered by the manufacturer.A  Quoting from the Operators Manual of a major manufacturer of radar guns in their section Why Testing Is Important, a€?In order to ensure continued compliance with FCC rules, meet legal requirements for admissibility or radar speed measurements, and verify full operating performance, the following test procedures are recommended. 5501, effective September 1, 2009 meaning the City of El Paso is responsible for enforcing violations city-wide. SML is conducting this project for an upcoming article titled a€?Handling Citizen Complaints About Speedinga€? which will appear in national law enforcement publications. SML is working with several manufacturers to have the display move showing approaching vehicle speeds under patent applied for provisions. SML did notice in both El Paso and Las Cruces a greater number of drivers using hands free devices in making calls while driving.A  This research is to be nationally published and forwarded to Texas State University for review. A total sample size of 4,413 vehicles were assessed for their speed in work zones with a Kustom Signals Inc. SML expects radar and laser gun manufacturer representatives to be present as with previous years. In a report from the Texas Transportation Institute at Texas A & M University,A  Summary Report 0-47045, the report lamented that a€?Double Finea€? law had little or no effect on drivera€™s speed in work zones.
Two tuning forks are supplied with each radar gun.a€? Departments should verify that equipment re-certification companies re-certify equipment to standards accepted as they appear in DOT HS 809 812 (radar) and DOT Hs 809 811 (laser).
The percentage of drivers on their hand held cell phones was also reduced dramatically with the After sample showing only 2% of the drivers on their phones compared to the Before sample of 6%.
ProLaser III tied to a laptop containing Kustoma€™s LaserStat program which automatically accumulates individual work zone speed limit compliance percentages. During the home visit, Officer Mickendrow presents the statistics from the Jamar pole mounted Speed Enforcement Evaluator. Graduates of the Master Radar Laser Instructor Course are certified to teach other officers to Operator or Master Radar Laser Instructor certification standards. Clearly, the visibility of radar use in the measured school zone was effective.A  SML advised the El Paso ISD Police Department to initiate RET meaning Random Enforcement Techniques in their school zones.
Research conducted by the Texas Transportation Institute at Texas A & M University in their published article Effect Of The Work Zone Double Fine Law In Texas found such restrictions as doubling speeding fines and signs had no effect on the average speed of drivers.
RET is random as the name implies.A  Effective measures are placing of School Zone Radar Equipped letters on the rear bumper of each unit, placing additional signs of Radar In Use in the school zone, and using a radar display attached to the police unit. Such a radar display shows oncoming driers their speed and should be placed at the entrance to the school zone.A  On some days there is no visible radar in the school zone. On other days there is.A  Such random enforcement techniques work and do not require constant visibility of police units in school zones. Drivers will not take the chance of getting caught speeding or using hand held cell phones in school zones.
