It's ironic that I was reading this morning about the man speeding in a Jaguar. I returned home from taking my daughter to school to find a man bleeding profusely and badly hurt laying in my yard. He had been hit and the woman who hit him had taken off. She hit him so hard that he flew over the fence and into a tree.

|4)|| I saw an illuminated speed sign in another neighborhood the other day. How can I get that in my neighborhood? |
The traffic speed sign is primarily used in conjunction with ongoing traffic complaints. However, when complaints are done, it is possible to request that the sign be placed in your neighborhood for a day to monitor traffic.

|5)|| How does the illuminated speed sign work? |
The traffic speed sign is sent out daily to different locations within the city to alert motorists and to educate them on the speed limit posted on the road that they are traveling upon. It is primarily used in conjunction with traffic complaints as there is a computer built into the system that records vehicle counts, speed and average speed based upon the volume of traffic. This determines the need for additional enforcement or recommendations to other city departments for action.
