Always accept a sincere apologies. Thank you all for your kind words we all do foolish things. The council meeting has opened new data points that need to be compiled.
I finally decided to attend the city council meeting to express my views on the Cooper Rd issues.
Algood City Council Meeting 6/9/2020 Starts at 36 minutes
Few things I’d like to point out. I stated publicly that there is/was a drug distribution house somewhere around Cooper Rd. Nobody cared. They even refused to pick up the pictures they wanted for a local drug store robbery. Nobody from the city has ever returned a email when I complained about these kind of issues. All those speeders have been reported to the city many times. Luke Hill was very concern that I accused him of getting and/or accepting favors. I did not. The data shows after he requested some vehicle data from me that there was a two month uptick of speeding tickets in his neighborhood. That is just a fact, of course the police return to normal patterns before and after the event. It’s data my friends that exposes the truth. The police are now sitting in a very bad position. I expanded my record request and discovered something very serious. Now I will expand the request and compile the data. It has become apparent I wasn’t the only person with unaddressed issues.
The meeting turn out to be fruitful I got some time to talk to the council and make some new friends who are just as concerned as me. We started identifying a bunch of the speeders, of course the police were silent.
In a city of less than 5,000 people you think we could all get along and make our community better? No, it’s disingenuous politics and lazy workers.
I walk down the road less traveled. I find the middle of the road then see a light at the end. The light is God. There are another set of foot steps behind me. Thank you lord for your guidance.
Collected the information I needed. The speed sign needs to stay up. Will be buying ads in Harold Citizen. All we ask is you slow down, and give us an apology. When contacting your attorney please let them know this.
We are offering YN95 masks to people who have high risk factor for covid.
The last Herald Citizen article about our site got my curiosity. It included a quote from the chief of police that the Algood police make over 100 speeding arrests per month. We just had to check that claim out. The fact is speeding arrests in Algood barely will top 100 per YEAR.
Things changed for the better last month and I’d be remiss if I didn’t point it out. 10 arrests last month. 3 for speeding in a 15mph zone. 5 for 50 in a 30 mph. 7 people live in Cookeville. Nice Job (J)! The good work is always appreciated.
We have stored last year’s 2019 speeding stats, and reset this year’s speed data. You should be able to clearly identify the repeated reckless drivers. These drivers represent less than 3% of the driving population. The 2019 reckless driver stats should be working again. You can also see the repeated offenders last year vs this year in our current stats.
We are starting to record driving patterns of all vehicles passing through Cooper Rd. We can certainly help identify illegal activity in our neighborhood. We will offer our city access to LPR information that the big cities already use here in Tennessee.
We can also identify any speeder on Cooper Rd BEFORE they reach the end of Cooper Rd in real time. (hint, very useful if your are the police stake out on Dry Valley Rd.) You can hear some of these vehicles drive through Algood, speeding down our various roads. Late weekend nights you can hear them go from one side of Algood, finishing down Dry Valley Rd.
Happy New Year!!!
I have been busy rewriting system code so there is no report this month. Hopefully by next month the system will generate it’s own reports. If you look our current speed graphics you will see we aren’t that far away.
We are capturing vehicle plates 24/7 in real-time. Takes 3-4 seconds to capture and store a plate number. The goal is to know a speeder’s traffic pattern. The night plate capture is over 90% accurate, which is amazing.
A big thank you to the Algood police, and the city of Algood for stepping up traffic enforcement. Also thank you to the 90% of citizens that keep obeying posted speed limit.
The website may be offline, or under construction over the next few months. We need build a nice user interface for our system.
