Double Oak Police Department's New Speed Tracker Trailer

Location:  420 Simmons Road, Double Oak, TX.  The posted speed on Simmons Road is 30 mph.

Police Radar Trailer Map Location

Dates:  Wednesday 9/06/2023 to Tuesday 9/13/2023 – (7) days

Total Vehicle Count:  17,578

Traffic Direction: 

South moving towards the trailer:  8,629 vehicles, 1,095 or 12.69%, were over the posted speed limit, with the average violation speed being 32.04 mph.  The average speed was 26.73 mph, with a maximum speed detected of 44 mph.

This is just a sampling of the data that DOPD can mine from this type of technology. 

Double Oak has become a “pass thru” town with a traffic increase on 407.  With Simmons, Cedarcrest, Tanglewood (north/south), and Waketon and Kings (east/west).  Once we mine data over time, this technology will allow the Chief, Assistant Chief, and our officers to patrol these busy roadways better to keep our town safe.

There will be more to share in the coming months on the data collected from this trailer.  So please stay tuned and slow down; the Double Oak Police Department is monitoring!

Burn Ban In Effect

Also, we would like to remind residents that we are in a burn ban for all of Denton County; there is an increasing threat of rapid ignition and spread of wildfires throughout the region due to persistent hot and dry conditions.

National Weather Service Critical Fire Conditions
