    Just wondering what times of the day were these checks being done? I was about on both days and never noticed.

    • Hi Kelly,

      The enforcement initiatives ran the better part of both days. On April 24th, they were in the area of 22nd Street West and Witney Avenue and on April 25th, they were at the intersection of Circle Drive and Preston Avenue. They also ran projects in additional, un-publicized, areas of the city.

      Thanks for the question!

        I wish they could do more of these at Circle and Preston. Drives me crazy how fast people seem to go in a 60 zone. Maybe they need glasses to see the signs that are posted.
        Keep up the work.
