Radar on Willow Ave.?

8/11/2009:

Received this tip from Hoboken411 reader, uh, “Willow”…

Radar to be installed? For what?

“There are no parking signs in front of 9th and Willow for all week 6-10pm. Found out the city is installing radar.

I haven’t found out exactly whether it’s secret radar or the kind that shows your speed on a display. There was some weird contraption on the street lamp, but it didn’t look like it’d be part of a radar installation.

Do you think cars drive too fast on Willow Ave.? Or are there too many double parked cars to get a good speed going?

Animal Planet had a show last night about Octopus’ eating turtles. Pretty sick.

a> wouldn’t a stop sign and making one of the lazy HPD “finest” stand there and actually enforce traffic laws have be less expensive?

b> it might be some kind of override for emergency vehicles, but that is a guess

The round item on the left is an antennae for a radar unit. You’ll see the same thing on police dashboards.

That round thing is the power plug, it plugs into the round thing of the same size that’s on the top of the light.
