Speed enforcement patrols to continue on Main Street

For the past few weeks, there has been a noticeable presence of Ferndale Police Department officers on Main Street in the area of the I-5 interchange. As a result, some drivers have had up-close and personal encounters with these police officers if they were not abiding by the posted 25mph speed limit.

Ferndale Police Chief Kevin Turner says the speed enforcement patrols are a result of the number of crashes, including injury crashes, in the area recently. “We expect that by bringing drivers’ speeds down, we will also see a reduction in the number of crashes,” Turner said.

A speeding ticket for doing 37mph in a 25mph zone comes with a $166 fine according to one driver cited during the first few days of the enforcement patrol.

The enforcement patrols will continue for several more weeks and could possibly continue indefinitely if they result in a reduction in the number of crashes in the area according to Turner.
