SOUND OFF: Portsmouth's Worst Drivers?

If it were up to you, where would you set up Portsmouth's latest speed trap?

We've all had the feeling—a driver cuts you off, ignores a red light or speeds past a group of children and our sense of justice kicks in: “How great would it be if a cop saw that?”

Bearing in mind that Town Hall decision-makers occasionally read our comment section, we wanted to throw this question out to our readers: in a perfect world, where would you set up the town's next speed trap? 

Your neighborhood cross street? A school crossing walk? Somewhere along West Main or East Main Road? Tell us where the town should set up a net for speeders in our comments section below.

Narrowing down East Main Road to one lane each way from Town Hall to Clements' Market will take care of most speeding issues in this area. It's harder to speed when you can't pass those who are driving the speed limit.

I couldn't agree with you more. Also, there have been two fatal accidents on BFR in the past year and it is heavily populated with young children. I hope it doesn't take another death for something to be done on this dangerous road.

Are you really a Former Ports resident? I wonder because I seem to read your comments alot on "portsmouth patch". Do they have a patch where you live now? I think these articles for looking for more positive feedback.
