Forest Grove Drive near Matanzas High

Palm Coast, FloridaApr 15, 20080 Comments

Excessive enforcement (3-4 deputy cars) of a single sleepy area since Matanzas High was built. Forest Grove Dr is the east-west road with Old Kings at the West end and Palm Harbor at the East end and the Old Kings continuation (the old dirt road) in the middle. — Deputies are always there on school days pulling over students, parents, & faculty as they move to and from the school. Deputies are also present on Sunday mornings between 9 and noon when a local church meets at the high school. — Some enforcement of this area would be practical, but their enforcement is excessive. The speed limit goes from 50 to 30, but the limit is not posted immediately either…in fact, it is not posted at all in front of the school on Old Kings until after one has passed the school zone. If they wanted to warn people to slow down, they would let the drivers on Old Kings and Palm Harbor know that a drastic reduction in speed is coming around the corner. But what they really want is the revenue. So it is truly a speed trap for a revenue stream and not a genuine concern for public safety.
