And now something completely different for Natalie,
In Stepford, the village formerly known as Alamo, the concept is always to deal with the affect after the fact. There is a simple solution to commuters speeding through Alamo. Get rid of the commuters!
Danville Boulevard should become Tree Museum Boulevard, as a toll road, and residents can be issued usage passes. As Joannie Mitchell so appropriately said, "They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum. And they charged all the people a dollar and a half just to see them." It is a very effective and polite way to tell commuters to get out of town.
See, the answers are always proactive and simple,

As a former Alamo resident, I recall the humor of our e-chains that would have created a 100 mph speed limit in Alamo. The concept was too simple. At 100 mph, even the most careless driver would have to consider just how fast is safe and, of course, the initial carnage would have deterred commuters from our boulevard.
The issue has always been what Millie Greenberg called a "corridor of significance" for Danville Boulevard in describing its primary purpose for foreign (commuter) travel. A toll road is a solution more than it is humor so that our boulevard does not become a by-pass for 680.
Focus on the cause,

The problem is, as the article states, commuters. Leave the speed limit the way it is, in fact raise it back to 35. Why punish those of us who live here because of a bunch of idiots during 2 small parts of the day?
25mph, 30mph, 35mph, it doesn't matter, the road is straight and easy to speed on. Maybe they should enforce the limits more?
