GUNTOWN, Miss. (WTVA) — The Guntown Police Department is now using radars to detect drivers who speed.
According to Guntown Police Chief, Michael Hall, the Board of Alderman passed the use of Radar to be used as a tool to slow down high speed traffic, after several complaints.
The Board also made Mill Street from Highway 145 to Main Street a one way street during the hours of 7:00 a.m. until 8:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.
Authorities say this change was made in an effort to help keep the school traffic from backing up on Highway 145.
During these time frames during school session, traffic will only be able to flow west.
You can not drive from Highway 145 to Main Street on Mill Street during this time.
Signs have been ordered and will be placed up as soon as they get in and will be enforced immediately after being posted.
The Board has also approved a 3-way stop at the intersection of Colt lane and Marlin to help move traffic in the area smoother and safer for the residents of the area.
