According to a member of the Taylor Berry Neighborhood Association, the 1500 block and the 3400 block of Oleanda Ave. now qualify for speed bumps.

Pads were placed on the street which measured speed and the amount of cars that passed over them for a 48 hours span.

We will keep up with progress on installation.
