Is there any way for the county or state police to send a traffic detachment to South Solon “Raceway” (Road)? Saturday or Sunday probably would be the most productive days.

They should put an officer out there with a hand-held radar gun and a chase vehicle positioned near the end of Padham Road, and they will be busy all day. They won’t need to concern themselves with minor offenses, since plenty of drivers will be driving 20-30 mph over the limit, which is 45 mph.

This is a curvy rural road with lots of children and pets. The scofflaws don’t care, and they speed with impunity.
