Soon neighbors will know exactly how badly they are speeding on Abrams

Drivers on Abrams will soon be reminded by signs like this one on Abrams.

The neighborhood failed the speeding test on Abrams Road, and now there will be consequences.

The city’s speed study found that most drivers are comfortable driving at 45 mph on Abrams, according to a Facebook post by District 9 City Councilman Mark Clayton. The posted speed limit is 35 mph.

The city will soon install a few measures in an attempt to slow traffic down on the street, where there was a recent fatality and numerous cars flying into front yards. During the speed study, cops were positioned along the street, and despite the Advocate’s stern warnings, over 150 tickets were issued in just four days.

Additional speed limit signs as well as a pair of radar speed feedback signs will be installed by Dec. 15 to remind drivers of just how far above the speed limit they are going.
