In an effort to control the speed of vehicles on Highway 42 and Lake Street in Algoma, portable speed trailers have been placed for the summer season. Algoma Police Chief Randy Remiker says the new system is on loan from the Sturgeon Bay Police Department and has been working well.
The speed approaching Algoma from the south changes from 45 miles per hour to 25 miles per hour near the city limits. Police Chief Remiker says the speed monitoring device has already been paying dividends controlling traffic. He reminds drivers to slow down and watch out for pedestrians crossing streets at all times this summer.
