A big thank you to the traffic division of Police Station 9 for beginning surveillance of motorists at the corner of Kildare and Merrimac, coming from Marc Chagall. For some time now, cars have been bolting right through the stop sign. Today the police posted a car in the area and ticketed a number of cars for not abiding by the law. There are a lot of young families in this area, not to mention close to 1,000 students at Bialik High School. God forbid we have a tragic accident. I am sorry it has come to this, but sometimes only the cost of a ticket gets motorists to think more clearly.
