Frost said no accidents had occurred there since police began writing warning tickets, and using a stationary speed monitor.
“Speed is the factor, and I don’t think the city needs to spend any money over there to resurface the road,” Frost said. “We’ll just continue to do what we’re doing, leave the speed monitor over there, and let the officers do their job.”
Frost added, “If you slow down there’s no problem. If you go through at 50 mph there’s a problem.”
The speed monitor sits beside property owned by alderman Wanda Davidson. She said it’s an eyesore and asked if it would be there “for eternity.”
Mayor Frost said at some point in the future he would like to place a permanent street sign leading up to the dangerous area warning motorists to slow down. The speed monitor will remain for now, Frost said, and the BMA will review its status in a couple of months.
