This is the most exciting thing at Loch Raven since the kids painted over the "R" in the Rock Church sign to make it an "F" and they painted over the "O" and made it a "U".

The speed limit sign you are talking about is well before where the hill goes down. There is a rise in the road at the speed limit sign. All I ever do is take my foot off the gas, and the car slows down to 30 before I reach the top of the incline. I think I am the only one who slows down for it. If you are obeying the speed limit of 40 on Cromwell Bridge Road you won't get a ticket anyway, because you are only exceeding the limit at the bottom of the hill by 10.

You know what bugs me is all the dumb ass people that drive 10mph below the fn speedlimit while going past these bs camera's! Learn the rules people!

Elliott, I think you should know that the SPEED LIMIT is just that. That is the fastest you should drive. It is NOT the required speed. "Learn the rules people!)

Speed cameras are a poor excuse for raising revenue under the guise of safety. http://www.onlinedatastoragesite.com/laptop-not-book/samsung-sequence-7-chronos-review-equipment.html
