This one goes out to you, Mapleleafer, and to you, 15th Ave Resident, and to Anon, and Sue and Gwen and Donna and the host of other folks who’ve commented on traffic and speeding since Maple Leaf Life got going.
They’re getting a speed sign, presumably somewhat similar to the one at right, as well.
The news was in the latest council newsletter, which should have arrived at your doorstep last week.
According to the council:
The cost of speed measurement and display gear has plummeted in recent years. We authorized the spending of a few hundred dollars to acquire the gear. The plan is to use it to measure speeds in problem areas of the neighborhood as well as to deploy it to remind drivers to slow down.
We’re still working out policies, procedures and safety measures, but we expect to be able to start using the gear later in 2011.
