It's Friday and I have a question about speeding...

Linda Davis is a member of the Ledyard Town Council and has lived in Ledyard for almost 40 years. She has lots of questions and welcomes your answers.

The Ledyard and Gales Ferry Community Forum on Facebook recently had a very lively discussion about speeding in Ledyard. What road in Ledyard do you think has the worst speeders?

when is the last time anyone has seen a driver pulled over in Ledyard?!!

I agree with Sue. I lived in Ledyard for nine years and have never seen anyone pulled over. People fly down 117 about 60 mph, that is my guess. Most of them are looking down at their cell phones and not on the road. Of course, that happens everywhere, not just in Ledyard.

Does anyone know what is wrong with the Christy Hill Condominiums that were built in the mmid sixties?

If all the speeders were pulled over the police would not have time for anything else.

We live in the Gales Ferry part of Ledyard and I believe one of the roads that has a problem with speeding would definitely be the straight part of Military Hwy, from Hurlbutt Rd. Towards the subbase. At least four or five children (grades K-and up) must cross Military Hwy to get to the bus stop at the corner of Browns Crossing between 7:45 and 8:05 am. Car speed by constantly trying to get to the north gate before it closes. Many times the parents have signaled for them to slow down or even yelled "slow down" with out any success. Parents have talked to the police and we are told to get their license plate number...Hello, if they are driving as fast as they are, how do you expect us to get it? The drivers have even passed the bus once it has stopped. The posted speed limit is 25 MPH. And we don't need a radar gun to know they are driving much faster than the posted speed limit. We don't seem to have much of a choice were our children get on the bus but we should be able to complain about it and have a little more support from the police to help us with the safety of our children from speeders. We really hate to complain about some of people the people who help protect our country while driving to the sub base in the am. But how are they protecting us and our children while speeding by children simply waiting to go to school.????
