It has been, sadly, a regular occurrence for years: motorists running stop signs on Kildare Road, between Marc Chagall and Rembrandt.
I see it when I am driving myself and whenever I walk the area. Perpetrators are most likely residents of District 2. Occasionally cars from Police Station 9 set up speed traps and try and nab the offenders. Such was the case today as a patrol car sat at the corner of Merrimac and Kildare, Parents from JPPS and Bialik doing pickup and drop off tend to be the guilty parties as well in some cases.

They slow down, but keep on going. A lot of research was done before adding the stop sign on Sir Walter Scott a few years ago and most recently on Rembrandt, We are trying to keep the area safe. For some people, the only way this sinks in is if they get an expensive traffic ticket. The police will be setting up shop there more often so please try and put your foot on the breaks more consistently.
