Lakewood Mayor Ray Coles responds to your ‘Ask The Mayor’ questions: Secret Speed Limit

The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].


Dear Mr. Mayor,

Thank you for all you do on behalf of our township.

It is no secret that Williams st. is a great alternative to RT 9 traffic between James and Prospect.

What seems to be a secret is the speed limit.

It’s a 25 mph residential street, but there is poor signage to indicate that. It has become a nightmare to cross the street, especially for children.

Some of my neighbors and I are wondering, would it be possible to place radar speed signs, AKA driver feedback signs to indicate the current speed so cars will slow down?

Maybe add speed bumps?

I know we are all in a rush, but let’s not wait for a tragedy to fix the problem.



Response from Mayor Coles:

Good morning,

I will ask Traffic and safety to place the Radar board over there and ask them suggestions about locations for additional signage.

Thanks for reaching out.

  1. Raders & adequate speed limit signage yes, speed bumps, no. Speed bumps are not good for the undercarriage of a car. Drive carefully & have a wonderful Shabbat.
