By chance I was heading up Herkimer past Durand Park late this afternoon and saw that someone had set up a speed radar with a digital readout. I stopped and watched it for just a couple of minutes but it only took that long to see someone speeding:

Car speeding past Durand Park

Again, I didn't have to stand around waiting for this. I'm sure if I had waited for a while, my patience would have been rewarded with some much higher speeds. (I'm going to try and find out who put the radar there and whether I can get a record of all the speeds it measured.)

Even a legal speed of 50 km/h past a park is already ridiculous, but exceeding that speed puts the automobile into the range of speeds in which a pedestrian struck in a collision is overwhelmingly likely to die.
