  • The Police Commission’s Costly Obsession With Queen Street

    To the Editor:

    What started as a legitimate effort to calm traffic on Queen Street has now turned into a fiasco. First two speed bumps, then three, and now five are planned.  Ten-mile-an-hour speed signs were posted. Now we learn that the Police Commission wants to make sure no driver can go more than 25 MPH in between the speed bumps.  Do any other roads in Newtown have that objective?

  • Queen Street Resident Urges More Speed Bumps

    A Queen Street resident is urging Police Commission members to have all five of the large speed bumps planned for Queen Street installed there to hold down motorists’ travel speeds as a pedestrian safety measure.

    Late last year, the town installed three large speed bumps, known as “speed tables” on the southern section of Queen Street as a speed control measure.
