Rock Creek Church Road Speed Being Monitored

Speed monitor Rock Creek Church RdAs I posted on May 19th, MPD has finally decided to respond to complaints that speeding has gotten out of control on Rock Creek Church Road, NW.

While I’d been hoping for more, they did install one of their devices that alerts drivers of their speed on Rock Creek Church Road at Illinois Avenue. I’ve learned that these devices do more than just that, however. They also gather and store information about how many cars go by and what speeds they are clocking at the time. Those signs are not just for reinforcement of the speed limit.

While I was there, many cars were traveling around 30 mph, as you can see. I saw one clocked at 42, with the interesting thing on that one being that it was traveling northbound, meaning it was going uphill.
