As we noted in the March Current and several Buzz posts, the Town has been working with Blue Line Solutions to install photographic speed enforcement equipment in front of TA and John Wayland Elementary. The 30-day warning period for drivers who are speeding in the school crossing zone ends today. Starting tomorrow, drivers who speed 11 mph or over the posted speed limit could receive a civil penalty of $100.
Once again, our objective here is not to boost revenue but to improve pedestrian safety in front of the schools. It’s also part of a larger plan to improve pedestrian safety up-and-down Main Street. We now have new and updated pedestrian crosswalk signals at Oakwood Drive, Mt. Crawford Avenue, Dinkel Avenue, and College Street, and a new crosswalk and signals at TA this summer.
