We don't want that happening here. So when your Board was informed by residents that we did have a traffic safety problem in our community, your Board took measures to address the problem. They increased the fines from $50 to $200. So what happened as a result?
When you look at the number of speeders the 7 months before the fine change we had 135 speeding violations and 469 failures to stop.
In the 7 months since the fines have been in effect we have had 79 speeding violations and 282 failures to stop. This is a 59% reduction in speeding violations and 40% in failures to stop.
Let's all keep our community safe. Come to a complete stop at STOP signs at the limit line and obey the speed limit. The accident you prevent, may be your own.
