    I was familiar with the Safety on Seventh campaign but the yard signs were new to me. Apparently they date to September.

    I saw those signs up and down both sides of Murray and thought they were a great idea. I got one for in front of my house on Krause. Cars travel way too fast on my street, especially since the Y opened a block away and its members use our street and parking lot. I hope the sign will help.

    I saw one of these signs on Miller today. The idea seems to be catching on.

    I had a very nice sign displayed on Arbordale (between Pauline and Stadium Blvd.) with somewhat the same message but it was stolen or removed. I was told that my sign was illegal. I have called traffic calming several times to have the speed monitoring sign put on our street but no one ever responds. I hope it doesn’t take another accident to get people to slow down especially with all the children walking back and forth to Eberwhite Elementary.

    Re (5) I have not consulted the sign ordinance recently but two things may have tripped you up: One is that permanent signage is under more regulation than temporary signs like campaign signs, for-sale signs, etc.

    Another is that signs are not supposed to be put inside the public right of way. If you have a sidewalk, that amounts to approximately your lawn extension.
