Have you noticed signs that say “Try to Drive 25” or “Drive Like Your Kids Live Here” popping up all over Norwood and especially by school zones? This is the work of Norwood resident Ginny Roessler. Her goal is to make Norwood a safer place for our students and pedestrians.
Ginny noticed a problem with speeding on the longer streets around Sharpsburg like Forest, Floral and Ashland Avenues and she was concerned for the safety of students and pedestrians alike. She worked with the police department to get extra patrols in the area and also have the “Speed Wagon” placed on Forest Avenue close to Sharpsburg. This shows a driver the speed they are going and flashes when the driver is speeding. Some of these things helped for a short time, but it did not alleviate the problem.
