SHARE PHOTO RADAR IN LAYTON DETECTS 105 VIOLATIONS

The recent monitoring of 10,000 vehicles along U.S. 89 with photo radar resulted in 105 citations, but Doyle Talbot, Layton police chief, said it's still too early to adequately address the success of the system in slowing down traffic along the busy four-lane road.

"We're starting to see some good results . . . But it's too early to get too excited," Talbot told the City Council.He said after a monthlong warning process, the first citations were issued at the end of May. Talbot also said the trial process has gotten the bugs out and motorists can now expect the photo radar van to begin moving to random lo-ca-tions along U.S. 89 in the city.

Talbot said most comments on the system have been positive.
