Do You Feel the Need for Speed?
I know, this speed limit sign looks different from ours. It's at the Port of Helsinki in Finland (remember my Sister Cities trip?) and it shows a reduction in speed limit for that area.
Here at home, the Pasadena Police Department will conduct a speed enforcement program all over town Monday, Sept. 8, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. So slow down!
As Acting Police Chief Chris Vicino says, "Our goal is to reduce serious injuries and fatal collisions that are a direct result of speeding and reckless driving. To that end, we are using this operation as a tool with the hope of changing driving habits for those who do not realize the consequences of this kind of dangerous behavior behind the wheel."
The Sister Cities trip was the reason I started this blog in the first place. If you didn't see my posts about that trip, just click on Sister Cities below this post and they'll all come up.
