Colorado’s most famous speed trap has a new tool to catch you.

Two weeks into its new speed camera program, the town of Morrison has issued 10,287 tickets.

That’s according to the Chief of Police, Bill Vinelli, who said he was surprised by the number of speeding citations. He said, “If you know Morrison’s a speed trap, then why are you speeding through Morrison?”

The recently installed camera at the intersection of Bear Creek and Mt. Vernon avenues became operational on May 5. It is programmed to capture individuals exceeding the speed limit of 25 by 10 miles per hour. Those captured by the camera will receive a $40 citation via mail, which Vinelli mentioned is cheaper than a standard ticket. Vinelli emphasized that the purpose of the camera is not to generate revenue, but rather to promote safer driving habits and ensure the well-being of all.

 

Morrison has traditionally been known for using tickets as a way to subsidize the town’s budget. A consulting firm found in 2021 that nearly half of the town’s budget that year came from fines.

We haven’t been able to confirm that Morrison has a patrol dedicated to kids speeding in toy cars. 🙂
