Speeding brought up at Boonsboro Town Counsel meeting

December 05, 2011

BOONSBORO, Md. — Two residents who live on High Street complained recently about speeding in the area, but the average speed on the street is 22 mph, Boonsboro Town Councilwoman Janeen Solberg said Monday night.

Resident Tim Roberts and another resident talked about speeding on High Street during a council meeting in October.

Solberg said during a town council meeting Monday that town police monitored the street for about 12 hours and determined the average speed on the street was 22 mph. The speed limit on the street is 25 mph, Solberg said.

There is some consideration about installing a sign in the High Street area warning motorists about children in the area, Solberg said.

Roberts said speeding on the street is particularly troubling since children often walk along the road and people jog on it.
