On Blue Rd between New Rd and McKenzie St ( J B Stephens Elementary School)
This is a NEW SPEED TRAP just went into effect on 08-20-02, the (NORMAL) posted speed limit is either 40 or 45mph depending on your direction of travel on Blue RD, until you reach the school zone and then it drops immediately to "20 MPH" (STRICTLY ENFORCED BY 2-4 OFFICERS AT ANY TIME). this school zone is in effect from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM MONDAY thru FRIDAY! This is absurd! I am not aware of another SCHOOL ZONE in this COUNTY,that is in effect all day long, in stark contrast to, just when children are in transit to/from the school. It is my opinion, that The City of Greenfield, has found a way to ENHANCE ITS REVENUE during these lean economic times,in the name of: SAFETY FOR OUR CHILDREN!!! I hold no "ILL WILL" toward this Police Dept, they are only enforcing the law, however "ABSURD" it may be! No I have NEVER been ticketed by this Police Dept, so there is no vandetta in play here at all…just disgusted!
