      Sergeant Griffin has headed a traffic detail on Lincoln Road and they have written many violations.  The speeding behavior may take time to break, we will continue to focus on that area!!

      I have not seen any officers in the evenings or weekends when I tend to be on the road there and still see people driving there much too aggressively.

      I am, however, curious as to the purpose of the officer (sometimes 2) that now seems to be almost permanently stationed on the corner of RI Ave and Lincoln Rd in the mornings. There is too much traffic in the mornings for anyone to speed there and the Lincoln Rd incidents all occur closer to the cemetery and the school. I have seen infractions still occur there in the mornings (red light running) that are not responded to by the officer(s).

      Thanks for keeping me informed, I have assigned the task to my traffic coordinator Sgt.  Griffin , I will give you an update on the progress at the location.  When are these violations primarily occurring?? We are focusing on the day hours since there is an elementary school near the location.  I hope our efforts in that area are seen by the residents but if not please continue to keep me informed!!!

      I sent the original post and to my knowledge, despite the assurances
      received, nothing has been done. I walk past there and/or drive every
      day and have not seen the electronic "speed sign" or police presence
      that was stated would occur.

      In fact, just a few days ago, a speeding car going southbound on
      Lincoln which turned onto 2nd street NE passed me with only INCHES to
      spare when I was walking IN THE CROSSWALK from Lincoln across 2nd -
      that corner houses the Shaed ELEMENTARY School and the Edgewood
      recreation is steps away.

      If there has been a police presence (I haven't seen it), it hasn't
      done one bit of good.
