Editorial: Time to crack down on Route 97 speeders


Portable or permanent speed sensors show what the limit is and flash how fast the driver is actually going.

Macek said he has talked to Police Chief Alan DeNaro about buying such devices.

The second step, of course, is to actually enforce the law by stepping up police visibility with regular patrols and radar traps until drivers get the message they not only should but also must slow down.

Macek said he has asked Council President John Michitson to talk to DeNaro about enforcement action.

Once police are ready to begin the crackdown they need to let the public know about it to make the effort more effective.

If you speed on 97, don’t say you weren’t warned.
