Speed traps continue

Do yourself a favour and keep that speedometer in the safe zone, as C-K cops continue to set up their traps.

Yesterday, members of the Traffic Unit conducted speed enforcement on Longwoods Road and McNaughton Avenue East in Chatham.

Thirty-seven motorists were stopped and charged with speeding.

McNaughton East is an area where nabbing speeders is akin to shooting fish in a barrel.
