BETTER ENFORCEMENT OF SPEED LIMITS: MAPLEWOOD sign now

We, the undersigned, deeply desire that Maplewood be as safe as possible for pededstrians and motorists alike. To this end we respectfully request--from our elected officials and the Maplewood Police Department--the creation and implementation of an accountable traffic safety plan that includes strict, systematic, regular enforcement of traffic laws, with special attention paid to those roads within a one or two block area surrounding schools of any kind, particularly during the times when children are traveling to and from school. In addition we would like to see the promotion of safe driving behavior through public education and information, review of speed limits and signage, and possible deployment of speed bumps on roads near schools. It is widely observed that the problem of speeding in Maplewood is pervasive, rampant and unchecked on all roads, be they major thoroughfares or short streets, and we are seriously concerned for the safety of the citizens of Maplewood, but particularly for the safety of our children.

    I live on a street that people use to avoid a light at Parker Ave and Boyden Ave. They speed up the hill from Boyden, without regard for what they might find at the top, like our kids!!

    Please include Ridgewood Rd, which has 1 Elementary School, at least 2 nursery schools, and several churches right on the street. And some of the worst speeding in the town.

    I live at the corner of Sommer Ave and Osborne Terrace, and Sommer Avenue is used like a RACEWAY to get from Prospect to Valley Street. We've had petitions, and the speed checking cart (though the last time it was simply broken and was taken away!) Fran

    Traffic is a huge problem throughout the township. I would support a traffic summit, with the police, engineering and public works departments represented along with the Township's Transportation Committee and various public and private pedestrian safety

    My husband and I walk our dogs around the Plymouth Ave & Oakview area each evening around 9:00pm. I am horrified by how fast cars tear up and down the streets.

    I live near the high school off of Valley and people often will drive too fast in order to get to school (students and adults alike) or avoid the lights on Valley. Slow down!
