A woman in Conception Bay South who complained recently that five of her pets have been killed on the Foxtrap Access Road is applauding a police crackdown on speeding.
CBC News first reported Michelle Peach’s concerns two weeks ago.
She said she fears a child could be harmed if speeding isn’t brought under control.
"Children are walking up and down this road to go to school and what if something happens? They're not going to have time to stop for a child," said Peach.
The day after she was on CBC News, the town set up a radar monitor next to one of the two schools on the road.
Since then almost 800 drivers have been clocked, and 85 per cent of them were speeding.
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary has been handing out tickets. It says one driver was travelling 91 kilometres per hour in a school zone.
C.B.S. Coun. Ken MacDonald said drivers should get used to seeing the radar device in different places around the community.
"We'll be moving that throughout the town all summer and fall. It'll be on different roads monitoring the speeds," said MacDonald.
Peach said she is pleased police and municipal officials are trying to control speeding, but she warns the problem hasn’t been solved yet.
"There's still a lot of traffic on this road that's not caring," she said.
