New flashing speed signs on Bayou blvd, help slow down drivers

New flashing electronic speed signs have been installed on Bayou boulevard.
    In an effort to slow  down traffic.

The posted speed limit for the stretch of Bayou boulevard is 35 miles per hour. 
These solar powered signs will flash if a driver's speed goes over 40. 

People who live nearby say that happens a lot.

Angela Mintz, resident, said "I have children, others on this street have children, and if you're out here.  There have been many times kids and adults both have come flying in and have skidded across on that side of the street. They've come into our yard a few times so they just fly through here.  It's dangerous."   

The main focus of these speed signs is to slow down traffic on this curve, where there are also memorial signs remembering those who died.
