Jeez even take offense when someone agrees with you!!!!! I don't want your support....I'm trying to tell you how to do something about something that drives YOU nuts!!! That exact statement you just made shows you don't really think about what someone says to you, but you have your agenda set in your mind! Here is something..finally...that you can do something about, and that still ain't good enough!

Paying attention to the car not slowing down for the yield sign across the intersection, it wasn't until the last second that I saw the school zone sign. Fortunately I already had my foot on the brake for the car blowing the yield sign so bringing the car down by 20kph for the new school zone sign wasn't too much of a problem.
I've been driving this road a bit more frequently now and I see many, many drivers failing to slow down for this sign. It's really not well placed.
Consider reading the research before commenting on photo enforcement:

Support Road safety through education, not speed enforcement.
