To the editor:
While we welcome the possibility that our new mayor’s proposed budget will include repaving our streets, the lack of law enforcement of speed limits lessens our enthusiasm for better roads. We are residents of Grover Street, and for as long as I can remember (25 years at the same address), there has not been regular enforcement by the Beverly Police Department regarding speeding.
I love to walk around my neighborhood but as some cars are at speeds that approach well over 50 mph, it is getting less safe to enjoy this pastime. So the conundrum is, do we leave our streets as they are, not as easy to recklessly drive upon, or do we repave and leave open the possibility of injuries and perhaps a few fatalities due to the lack of speed limit enforcement?
