Dumb idea of the day
…Goes to Alderman Roger Patton who wants to reduce the speed limit on East Avenue to 20 MPH because Carroll University kids never learned how to cross the street. While the idea is a little better than digging a tunnel the street, it isn’t much better than closing the street entirely.
I don’t know if the Common Council is aware of this, but Waukesha has a certain reputation for being difficult to get around. Slowly making one of the main roads in the city impassable is not going to improve that reputation, nor is it going to help the traffic flow into downtown.
