Q. speed trap needed on Threadneedle street. Worst times are between 6am-7:30am and again in the early afternoon/evening. Children are on the street going to school and too many cars are using this street as if it was a highway.


Dear Juneau Resident,

A request for extra patrol has been sent to JPD officers, including the school resource officers. We will get people out there as time allows. The times you mention are also high use times for school crosswalks, which takes quite a bit of enforcement effort and stretches our resources.

If other neighbors/parents are concerned as well, you can organize to 'patrol' the area yourself demonstrating what it means to drive the speed limit during times kids are walking in the area. Peer pressure is a powerful motivator and can greatly assist the police in making for a safe environment. If every concerned parent in that neighborhood did a couple of extra 'laps' at the speed limit in the morning and after school to slow down the speed demons, you might see big changes.
