ROCKLAND — The city continues its effort to slow speeders and make Rockland safer for pedestrians, bicyclists, and other motorists.

On Thursday, June 30, and Friday, July 1, four “speed humps” were installed on Cedar Street from Broadway to Old County Road. There are signs in front of each bump urging motorists to drive 15 miles per hour.

The residents of the streets reported to the city vehicles speed on the street, particularly during the school year.

The estimated cost of the work on Cedar Street is $12,320.

The city has also looked at slowing traffic on Pleasant Street and are trying to develop plans to slow traffic on Broadway.

The police department is so short staffed that regular speed patrols are not possible.
