"We have received complaints of speeding vehicles in areas of Calais and will be focusing more attention on that issue. Particularly important, is that motorists remain mindful of school busses and their loading and discharging of children."

Due to repeated near-miss situations on South St., operators exceeding the speed limit should be prepared to be stopped and possibly ticketed. 

Please plan to leave a few minutes early to arrive at your destination to ensure you're not running late and tempted to rush.
