Garfield never enforced the area unless it was school time. They knew for YEARS that speeding was going on but when they need money this is how they do it. You can consider this a "tax" to help them pay all of their bills. Cities like this are all about getting money into their coffers.
I personally have stopped going down this road and have taken by business out of Garfield Hts. it is not hard to do.
I encourage everybody to keep their business out of Garfield. People should pay their fines in rolls of pennies.

I can't believe some of the posts in this thread. It's scary how naive some people are.

It is amazing how some people haven't become violent over these things. When Cleveland decided to put them up, I figured it would only be a week or two before people started to shoot them down. I was wrong, and again, surprised.

I believe it comes with a money back guarantee. What the hell, it costs about as much as four packs of cigarettes, and can save you hundreds--especially if you have kids driving your cars.

It looks like a few new 25 m.p.h. signs have been posted on Turney Road going toward Maple Hts??

There are three 25 m.p.h. signs between the 480 exit on Antennucci Blvd. and Ace Hardware!

Hey, it is for revenue and safety. It is nice to see that the speed is posted more clearly for everyone.

Don't go over 10 m.p.h. and everything will be fined, uh I mean, fine.

Oh well, Garfield voters are about to exercise their right to get rid of these traffic scams. It is good they posted more speed signs in that area, because even without the cameras Garfield hangs out there to catch people in that speed trap area.

But it's the last sign you will see until you get to Rockside Road. Going north on Turney, it's 35mph until you hit that small shopping area by Dairy Mart. So it's 25mph between that area and Rockside going South, and 35mph if you are going north. WTF???

There is a 35 mph sign after Maple Leaf school, on the right side, going toward Rockside.

You are right about the other side of Turney being 35 until Dairy Mart.

What's wrong with 25 mph on the school side? Kids play there after school and during the summer months when the 20 mph lights are not flashing.

There is a lot of radar devises set up around the country. None of them are 100 percent true. They must be checked and set regularly. If it is not set properly then there are more incorrect speeding tickets given out.
Don't forget the tests that showed trees and telephone posts moving at 15 MPH. Are the devices better now?
Personal experence has shown me moveing 16 MPH faster than I was going.

In one situation in another state, the court room was filled with people who were prepared to fight their red light tickets. Ironically, most of them knew each other. How was that so??? Because they were all in a funeral procession where the escort guided them through the red lights to the grave yard.

Big Brother is a bad idea in any city. We have that here in Maple Heights where the building inspectors are constantly harassing people because the weeds in their lawn are over 6 inches high in droughts like this. In light of the Forth Amendment of our Constitution, Maple Heights forces their way into homes for interior inspections of rental units. And this is what happens when you let government get too far.

Damn idiots almost messed it up, 51 percent to 49 percent. Almost a case example of why people tend to be too stupid for democracy to work.

Close enough for a recount? What about the trash tax - that one is EXACTLY even, according to Channel 5.

It is sad how close this vote came. I thought for sure there would be enough anti-Big Brother voters to bury this thing.
