|Were the radar display signs just a ploy to appease residents concerns over speeding?|
After a year from when petitions were signed and meetings held to curb speeding and roll-throughs on borough streets, not one thing has been done to address the issue by Media Borough Council. Residents on 6th Street who signed the petition have not even been updated by councilwoman Sayre Dixon, running for re-election, who lives on the same street!
After a year, it's quite apparent now that the radar speed signs initially displayed on a few streets were only really for show as borough council conceded they didn't even know how to use them. Media has no problem purchasing a park from a borough employee within six weeks to put in a pocket park, but after a year has done nothing for safety on our streets. At this point they are just pretending the problem doesn't exist.
Kevin Bower who is also up for re-election has not even lifted a finger or questioned the lack of leadership regarding public safety. Did anyone on council think to ask the reasoning behind purchasing technology no one had any idea how to use? Do they not see with their own eyes the speeding and neglect for coming to a full stop at intersections? At virtually every street?
