The speeding on Purchase Street is way out of control.

And the posted speed is the same as for most residential streets, 30 mph which is 10 mph too high. When that sign is posted, the actual speed drivers maintain is well over 40.

Now if we had a casino the traffic would have been only going around 2 mph. lol

I with drivers did 40. 50 is closer to the norm.

I live on purchase, 40 is is the minimum people drive, it is a residential area, but people think it's a speedway to and from 495. we need some of those flashing speed signs that pick up your speed and flash when you are going over the limit...we could use several of these on this street http://trafficlogix.com/productsservices/signsoverview with increased patrols as well....the town could make a bundle pulling people over on purchase.

For years Bancroft Avenue has been a speedway--and only about a third of the traffic actually stops at the stop signs that divide the road up. My neighbors and I complained about both of these things, and the police set up a box to check the speeds. I received a report later on that said that there was no evidence of speeding. I have filmed the cars speeding past Draper Park, never stopping at the stop signs. So I am very discouraged. But what are my regular observations, based on years of driving and residential living, compared to the little black box the police hung from a telephone pole for a day or two? Oh, and Mark Cain's comment is very funny!
