    Re Greg Woodruff’s comments. Yes, let’s see a map of where these 117 tickets were issued. I know that the police have not set up in my school zone that I reported to them in the spring. Vehicles constantly doing 60++ in our 40 streets.

    Finally !. It’s time to focus on Residential Area’s.

    This is just a money grab.

  • The police do a lot of good on speed reduction. However the Speed trap at Waterdown Road and Masonary Court has nothing to do with “dangerous or aggressive behaviours”. It’s just a good trap for them to sit on Railway Road and target people getting off the high way driving down a strip with nothing on either side that is irrationally posted at 50km.

    The police are receiving complaints about people driving fast there? From who? No one even lives on that strip. There are zero houses, zero stores and zero roads entering or leaving. Let’s get the position of these 117 issues tickets and map them. I’m skeptical on this one.
