Police in Fairfield look to stop speeding in residential neighborhoods

Some residents in a Fairfield neighborhood want to put a stop to speeding. So for the first time in Fairfield, the police commission has begun reviewing the idea of installing speed humps. First Selectman Ken Flatto (D-Fairfield) says streets in close proximity to schools or streets too short to utilize radar enforcement would be considered first. He added that the town plans to model it's policy after Westport's, where speed humps were adopted in 1999. If Fairfield follows Westport's guidelines, 60 percent of the property owners on the street would have to file a petition for speed humps.
