The arrival of an electronic speed radar sign in Hammonds Plains earlier this month flagged drivers clocking more than 70 km/hr; resulted in numerous speed fines; caused mixed reactions; and raised the question, what is Citizens on Patrol?
“I think it was a great addition to community,” says Marty Robar, resident of Highland Park. The speed sign was recently placed near Robar’s house on Pinetree Cres. where his dog was hit earlier this year.
“Hopefully it will spur people to watch their speed limits, although there was already an unfortunate incident where someone in the community was bragging they got it up over 60 km/h,” says Robar.
