Curtailing speeding in Tryon

Published 3:28 pm Friday, December 7, 2012

Tryon Police Chief Jeff Arrowood records speeds near the clocktower in downtown Tryon after Columbus Police Chief Chris Beddingfield clocks them on a radar gun. The two police chiefs said they’re working together to limit speeding in both towns. Beddingfield said the radar was provided through the Governors Highway Safety program. Using a speed laser, the device can pick up speeds even in heavy traffic. He said it also goes unnoticed by radar detectors. (photo by Samantha Hurst)
