Leesburg Residents Will be Armed with Radar Guns to Control Speeders

WTOP Radio reports that Leesburg residents fed up with speeders whipping through their neighborhood will now be able to do something about it, as police are teaching concerned residents how to operate a radar gun.

"Neighbors will work in pairs, with one person operating a radar gun while the other writes down the license plate.

"A warning letter will be sent to the driver notifying them that a radar caught them and asking them to obey speed laws."

WTOP quotes Leesburg Police Lt. Jeff Dube saying, "We're not out encouraging any traffic vigilantism."

What do you think of the idea? We'd love to hear your feedback on arming residents with radar guns. Will it help control speeders? Comment below.
