  3. Those numbers are scary! What is wrong with people? Also, why don't the slow down on the 215 where it is now 55 mph in the work zone. I put on my emergency flashers just so no one will run me down in order to drive the speed limit!

  4. Thank you Police Department for doing this! I can't believe the numbers, they are scary! Please do this more often. Call me, I'll bring you coffee.......

  5. This is great news. I would love to see more checkpoints. I realize it takes a lot of manpower to have these checkpoints but look at how much good it does.
