  •  In Police Department

    One of the most common complaints the Rockland Police Department receives from citizens is about a car traveling too fast on Main Street.

    Research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that the force of impact on the human body is more than one-third greater at 35 mph than at 30 mph.  Reduction in speed by one mile per hour equates to a five percent reduction in car crashes. Speed is a contributing factor in about one-eighth of all crashes and in about 33 percent of fatal crashes.

    Getting drivers to reduce their speed is one way the Rockland Police Department can truly save lives. Getting a driver to reduce his or her speed not only makes that driver safer, it also makes all the other motorists and pedestrians who share the road safer. And every other driver who passes a motor vehicle stop is likely to slow down.  With the dangerous consequences of speeding well documented, the Rockland Police Department takes every citizen complaint about speeding seriously.

    The Rockland Police Department with the help of Rockland Public Services has attached a speed display board on Main Street to make motorists aware of their speed.

    Unfortunately, a constant police presence is expensive and not realistic. So periodically there may be a Rockland police officer conducting speed enforcement in the area for those that do not appreciate the warning.

    If you want to spend time watching the sign and don’t see speeds displayed, this is good.  The sign will not display any speed under 20MPH.

    The speed limit on Main Street is 25MPH. – OBEY THE SIGN OR PAY THE FINE!
