Longmeadow Police enforcing new speed limits around middle schools

The new limits apply to the driveway and the parking lots of each school

LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – Longmeadow police are enforcing new speed limits around two Longmeadow middle schools as a way to stop the problem.

New signs have been posted at Glenbrook Middle School and Williams Middle School warning drivers to reduce their speed to 10 mph. A Longmeadow police dispatcher told 22News the changes were made by Sgt. Carl Mazzaferro over the last few weeks.

A Glenbrook parent told 22News that she’s seen the problem first hand.

“I can see why the police would do something to kind of slow it down because kids are in a hurry to get to school and dart out in front of cars and it’s dangerous.”

The new limits apply to the driveway and the parking lots of each school. No new speed limit signs have been posted in the neighboring residential areas.
