...(A)fter an outcry from the public, the school zone signs near the Lakeland High School campus were changed...The old signs stated drivers, on school days, needed to slow down to 25 mph at six different times...The new signs state the school zone will be in effect from 6:49 - 9:07AM...and 2:03 - 4:29PM...
White Lake Supervisor Greg Baroni said the change was made around 10 a.m. Thursday. "...(T)he (Huron Valley School) district...didn't know about the change...It was likely a change made by the county."
Craig Bryson, public information officer with the Road Commission for Oakland County, (said), "This wasn't our ideal alternative, and we will still be meeting with the school district and township to discuss the installation of a flashing yellow light and how the district would pay their portion..."
This may not be an "ideal" alternative, but it's the one that's more likely to prevent accidents -- and make it appear that someone on the Oakland County Road Commission has at least two functioning brain cells!
