“This device shows drivers their actual speed and flashes red if they are speeding, encouraging them to slow down,” the department said on Facebook.

Through a donation made by Chief Keith Pesnell and the City of Bremen Police Department, the $7,000 it would have cost for the buggy will not come at the expense of taxpayers.


Deputies say the buggy will receive a $500 makeover that will include new batteries and a fresh paint job.

As for the location of the speed buggy? HCSO officials say it will be placed in areas with speeding complaints to promote safer driving and potentially save lives by preventing accidents.
