Speeders heed warning signs

Editor:

Someone posted some “radar ahead” signs along Crescent Road.

Someone posted some “radar ahead” signs along Crescent Road.

Was it done by someone who got caught speeding and wanted to warn other speeders, someone who lived nearby and wanted to slow down some of the speeders, or was it someone who was making a suggestion to the police?

Then, a week or so later, someone took down the signs.

Was it the same person, or someone who wanted speeders to get caught, someone who didn’t care that most vehicles drove at double or triple the posted limit along Crescent Road, or someone who just doesn’t like signs?

Whoever it was, and whatever their reasons, it worked! I’ve noticed many cars slowing down when the driver saw the signs, and cars going by more slowly as I walk my dog along Crescent Road.
