HILLSIDE - Police in Union County may soon have a new weapon at their disposal to stop drivers from speeding.Hillside police are looking into using a new laser to catch speeders. This morning, police got a demonstration of Kansas-based Kustom Signals' ProLaser III along Route 22.Hillside Police Lt. Michael Katsoudis says the laser beam is about two feet wide and focuses only on the car that's violating the speed limit. He says this is everything police need to get drivers convicted of speeding offenses.Though Hillside police haven't purchased the lasers yet, officials say they could have them by the end of the month, which would make Hillside the first police department on the East Coast to use the technology.
