A speed-reader board that is hoped to help police tackle problem areas while educating the community about speed limits has started making the rounds in White Rock.

Const. Janelle Shoihet said the mobile board will be placed in key areas for two weeks at a time, starting with the 15700-block of Thrift Avenue, the 15700-block of Buena Vista Avenue and the 14700-block of North Bluff Road.

As the unit takes up a minimum of one parking space and set-up requires the use of a second, community policing volunteers are liaising with residents to ensure the placement is appropriate and will cause the least disruption, Shoihet said.

Residents with suggestions for future locations to place the board may call 778-593-3610.
