Carlisle Police stop 65 speeders

Last week, some of the commuters who race along Carlisle roads got a wake-up call. Between Tuesday, April 18, and Friday, April 21, 65 vehicles were stopped for speeding in Carlisle. The planned "selective enforcement," as it is categorized in the police log, netted the town approximately $5,000 in fines. Money set aside in the police budget for this purpose made the operation possible.

On Tuesday, patrol cars were monitoring at West and Acton Streets during the morning rush hour. On subsequent days, individual patrol cars were stationed at those spots around town where speeding has been reported or where police have noted speeding in the past, such as Acton Street and Heald Road, Concord Street and Indian Hill Road, and East Street.
