Reduce the speed of traffic on residential streets
People are driving their cars too fast though residential neighborhoods. I'd like to see a big increase in speeding enforcement, a big increase in fines for speeders, and many more traffic calming measures like speed bumps put into place. For its size, SLC has an excellent transit system. Increase the incentives for students to use transit. Promote transit. The $42/mo. Hive Pass is a huge money and stress saver compared to car expenses. Are people aware of that? Increase the costs of abusing driving privileges through fines. Educate people about the negative impacts they have on neighborhoods when they drive too fast, and hit them hard in the pocketbook if they continue. That requires enforcement of the law, and I just don't see that happening at all right now.

This is a big problem in my area too. We, the residents, have complained for years and our complaints have fallen on deaf ears. We were told that speed bumps are no longer an option in the city, but I don't believe that. In 14 years I've seen one police car on the corner and it was during one of the least busy times in the evening, so it was pointless.
