When Doug Imboden (now deceased) was president of the South Shores Neighborhood Organization, he was able to buy some refurbished speed guns and our suspicions about speeding were confirmed in this Holy Family Catholic Church and School, Imboden Drive area.

South Franklin Street from Grove Road north to Imboden Drive is two lanes on the east side of the center line until you get to Imboden then the two lanes become one. The traffic in the east lane near the curb start speeding up at Holy Family Convent just north of South Shores School to get ahead of the cars in the other northbound lane because they know their lane is ending. They should just merge, but instead go 45 to 55 miles an hour to get ahead. Then there is the matter of the little motorcycles that do 60 to 70 mph.
