The article in Friday's Glendale News-Press quoted Fred Jackson on the three Es of education, engineering and enforcement (“Metrolink targets Doran crossing,” Jan. 28).
Quite a few years ago, when speed bumps and traffic circles were being installed along Mountain Street and in the area, I sat next to an Alabama traffic engineer on a flight to Birmingham. I asked him to comment on the massive project, and he told me about the three Es. But he listed them in a different order and said it was too bad Glendale was resorting to the expensive engineering before giving education and enforcement a chance.
He warned me of strict speed-limit enforcement along a wide parkway in the area where I was going to be working. Three other people, including the hotel front desk clerk and two work colleagues, gave me the same warning. Obviously, strict and widely known enforcement works there.
