Middlefield Road at Easy Street
Officer sits on motorcycle on North side of Easy St, measuring traffic speed on Middlefield Road. Due to trees along Middlefield Road, location is not visible to passing traffic.
Easy St is at the bottom of the overpass over Hwy 85, so vehicles on Eastbound Middlefield Road frequently exceed the 35 MPH speed limit.
Accidents are frequent on this corner as drivers pull from Easy onto Middlefield and have their view obstructed by the same trees that hide the officer.
There is a grade school and bus stop on this block, and at least one child has been hit on this intersection in the last year – so in addition to slowing down for monetary reasons, please be cautious for safety’s sake!
