Drivers who drove by Cedar Springs City Hall last week may have been surprised to see a radar speed sign that told them how fast they were going.

According to Sergeant Jason Kelley, of the Kent County Sheriff Department’s Cedar Springs Unit, the sign was there simply to record traffic speeds, times and dates. He assured us that no tickets were written because of it, or people pulled over near it.

The Post asked what he was going to do from the information gleaned from it. “I have no particular plan for the information obtained from the sign at this point,” explained Kelley. “I just wanted to get a pulse on heavy traffic times and speeds.”

He said that the sign, which was temporary, came at no additional cost to the city.
