Speeders on Miller Dr. concern resident

(This letter was sent to Rick Henry, Engineering and Public Works director for the Town of Halton Hills. A copy was made available for publication.) Dear Mr. Henry, I am writing regarding the lack of traffic signage in Georgetown South. I live on Miller Drive which is becoming a very busy road. I did `choose' to buy a home on this road, but what I did not `choose' is to have individuals treat my residential street as a highway. On a regular basis many drivers speed along this road and I would estimate at 15-30km/h over the `unposted' speed limit of 50km/h. I know that when there is no posted speed limit typically it is 50km/h in town, but I seem to be one of a few who realizes this. When I pick up my children from school, which also happens to be on Miller Drive, I have seen many people brake heavily to slow down when entering the school zone which is also `unposted'; some don't brake at all. I'm pretty sure that school zones are always 40km/h. I thought most people were aware of this too, but from what I have seen, this is not the case. Recently I witnessed a driver almost miss the stop sign at Miller and Eaton and brake for only a second before continuing. Perhaps she was going too fast to see the stop sign? People have also passed me on this road-- once in the school zone! I am requesting that speed limit signage be put up immediately before something tragic happens. Who knows, maybe it won't help but it would sure be worth it to me. Pam Galvao, Georgetown
