Nobody likes to get a speeding ticket. It's embarrassing and expensive. And, of course, we're always innocent.
Nevertheless, we're glad to see that the Danville police are trying to make the streets safer for the motorists driving on them and the pedestrians crossing them.
An increase in manpower and a federal grant for overtime has allowed the Danville Police Department to issue 77 percent more speeding tickets in the period of April through September. That increased level of traffic enforcement has got to be making the city's streets safer for everyone, even though it has made 77 percent more people angry.
There's a solution for those people who think that 25 miles an hour or 45 miles an hour or whatever the posted speed limit happens to be is too slow. They can go to the Danville City Commission or the state and request that the speed limits be raised.
