Atwater St. Lake Orion 48362, Orion charter Township, Michigan
Atwater Street is a main thoroughfare between M24 and Orion rd. This street has a speed limit of 25mph but commuters rarely obey this limit. The street is regularly patrolled by LOPD but the sheer volume of traffic makes it difficult to prevent all speeders. There is a large number of children in this area that utilize Atwater park and are put at risk by speeders (40+ Mph). I would like to propose the installation of portable radar speed signs (see attached) near the Atwater park cross-walk. These simple/ cost effective signs have been proven to be an effective device at reducing vehicle traffic speeders.
