Traffic offenders near school need to feel pain

November 21, 2012
The Marietta Times

I'd like to thank the Ohio State Highway Patrol for showing up near Warren High School/BV Elementary this morning (Nov. 16) to enforce the school zone speed limit. It's amazing how well-behaved people are when the police are staring at them. When the police aren't there, it's another story. Many people seem to think that 40 mph is fairly close to 20 mph. Forget about the speeding on Warrior Drive! Most don't even try to slow down. The sheriff's office could make their budget for the month with a well-placed officer enforcing, and ticketing, offenders. I don't mean parked so obviously that even the worst offenders have time to slow down. This problem won't diminish until some people feel the sting.
