Speeds on Silver Street

In September, the Police Department deployed a stealth radar unit on Silver Street to capture the number of vehicles and their speeds.   The results of the 4 day survey are:

Total vehicles                   6884
36-40 mph                       2800
31-35 mph                       1971
41-45 mph                       944
26-30 mph                       677
21-25 mph                       304
46-50 mph                       136
16-20 mph                        33
11-15 mph                         8
56-60 mph                       5
51-55  mph                       3
70+                                    3

Fortunately the majority of the vehicles are travelling at or below the posted limit.  We are working on reducing the number of vehicles travelling at excessive speeds by increasing time spent on Silver Street to monitor traffic.  We will publish additional analysis of other streets as they become available.  Please contact Chief Robert Ducharme at 742-8549, ext 303 if you would like an analysis done on your roadway.

Volunteers Needed: Rec Basketball

The Rollinsford Rec. Travel Basketball Program is looking for volunteers to continue the program here in Rollinsford.

Last year, the program ran open gym times for 3rd – 6th graders to learn some basketball skills and have fun. In the past, the program has had 4 separate travel basketball teams: 3rd & 4th grade boys, 3rd & 4th grade girls,  5th & 6th grade boys, and a 5th & 6th grade girls’ team. This has been a great program for the children of Rollinsford, and with your help and interest, it can continue to whatever level we choose.

If you are interested in helping out, please join us for a meeting next Tuesday, October 24th, 6:00 pm in Mrs. Kaichen’s classroom. If you can’t make it, but are still interested in helping, please contact us via email at rollinsfordbball@gmail.com or by phone, Andrea Anderson at 603-401-0765.
