Norwalk police put the breaks on speeders

On the first weekend of the 2007 summer season, Norwalk police are reminding drivers to pay close attention to their speed as they travel within the city.

Norwalk police started its weeklong traffic enforcement program called ?Slow Down Days.? They say they will target certain areas around the city, they describe as well-known hot spots.

They say one street they will focus on is Beach Road. Norwalk resident Renato Dasilva says people speed on the road all the time. He says he is concerned because a lot of couples walk by with children.

Norwalk Police Lt. Angela Walsh says other streets like Strawberry Hill and Weed Avenue help make up about 15 hot spots for speeding throughout the city. Extra officers have been called in to help spread the message.

Walsh says the department?s intention is not to issue more tickets, but to have people comply with the law.
