28 PAWTUCKET NOVEMBER 26-DECEMBER 3, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | PAWTUCKET EDITION The message people should be get- ting is that they should be slowing down, particularly when traveling through school zones. "Get the damn message, slow down," Wildenhain said. "And if you don't get the message, then pay the fine." He cited the example of 520 people being caught by cameras going over 40 miles per hour in the 20-mph Newport Avenue school zone as an indication that there's a serious prob- lem that needs to be addressed. "If that's (getting people to slow down) what this accomplishes, I hope it does," said Wildenhain. The councilman acknowledged a resident who came to address the council with concerns about the time- frame for tickets, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays, saying the administration should consider potential modifica- tions, but said the clear message remains that people need to slow down in school areas. Resident James Marcil had implored the council to push for an earlier end time to the daily ticketing timeframe, sharing how he received a ticket at 5:42 p.m. on Oct. 31 for going 31 miles per hour past Slater Middle School on Mineral Spring Avenue. He said he wasn't there to protest the ticket. "My issue is the time of the ticket," he said. Even if taking into account after- school programs, it's doubtful that any of those are still going at 5:42 p.m. Most youths are getting out of school at 2:35 p.m. and rushing to get home, he said. Marcil said he's not naïve enough to believe that this safety program isn't a way to bring in revenue, but said council action to revise the time- frame for tickets would make it look like it's all about the students while reducing stress on the driving public. He also urged the city to add clear signage in all directions for zones where the cameras are.
