Our numbers show that over 30% of vehicles are exceeding the speed limit. Most vehicles began to slow down once they noticed the sign; the speed sign was visible from the top of both hills at the two main entrances to the cabin area. Most residents were thankful that we have taken the initiative to build awareness to the posted Speed Limit which is 20 K.M. Residents were also concerned with the speeds in both the back lanes and side streets which were not involved in the watch.
Please consider your Speed as you travel in the camp ground area there are a number of young children and adults who walk and ride bikes in our area and the safety of all residents is our primary concern.
Once again this is a Speed Awareness Program and our goal is to slow down the vehicles traveling in the camp ground area.
