Letter to the Editor: Speeding in North Baldwin

Resident Cindy Morell writes.

The Baldwin-Whitehall Patch received the following email on Feb. 1 from Baldwin Borough resident Cindy Morell, who has taken issue with what she seems deems to be excessive driving speed in some north Baldwin areas.

Other than addressing some minor grammatical issues, the wording seen below was written as is.


I wanted to remind anyone who goes over to W.R. Paynter Elementary School that there is a school zone on Pleasantvue Drive where it is 15 mph and that the parking lot of the school has 15-mph signs posted.

Also, as a reminder, the speed limit on Joseph Street in Baldwin is 25 mph.

Why not give the police there lic #

Good suggestion, Ken. A few neighbors did that with one who was speeding on our streets, and the BP kindly stopped at her house and gave her a warning about the complaints, and she has slowed down since then.

Sometimes I feel like I am the only one who does 25 on that stretch, even the Borough trucks are going faster than the speed limit there.

BBP should sit at the corner of Meadowdell and Steiner, they would make more than enough money on tickets at the stop signs to pay for the street lights to be returned!

I agree with having a BBP at the corner of Meadowdell and Steiner. I have lived here for 49 years and the only time I see a patrol car sitting down their is around election time. Go figure.
