It used to be that Edmonds was known for speed limit enforcement. That made me proud and feeling safe.
I live on 3rd Avenue and when cars go speeding by (often coming from the ferry, cutting thru to get to 220th, 100th, etc.) it makes me very concerned. I think of children who will be coming to the park (even now, with the construction there are groups who play on the grass). I also have noticed quite a number of walkers including families and elderly people.
I do not see or hear the motorcycle policemen anymore — those ever-present enforcers of the speed laws.
What has happened? Why aren’t drivers being stopped? If/when that resumes, it will serve as a strong deterrent to speeders once again, providing more safety as well as a nice income to the city government. Just sayin……it would be so nice to feel safer again.
