Traffic Enforcement

In 1997 the Plymouth Township Police Department requested from the Township Board to conduct selective Traffic Enforcement.Plymouth Township has received Traffic safety awards through out the years for our efforts in reducing traffic crashes. This is the primary goal of traffic enforcement for officers.

Recently the Police Department purchased a second “speed trailer” and both are available upon requests from residents/ schools etc. to monitor traffic volumes and speed. The police department receives many requests for stop signs, traffic lights and concerns of other traffic issues and we will attempt to resolve those issues working with the County Road Commission and Michigan Department of Transportation. Residents should understand that what they see as a simple solution may in fact increase the traffic problem based on years of traffic studies conducted through out the United States. There are requirements that must be met to justify placing signs, signals at locations. Officers are deployed to areas within the Township when a concern is brought to our attention or based on number of accidents at a location.

Residents may contact Lt. Bob Antal with requests for the Speed trailer or other traffic concerns.
