MILWAUKEE- A different group of drivers caught the eye of Speedbusters this week: students.
On the border between Milwaukee and Shorewood -- the speed limit is 25 miles per hour. But drivers to and from the UW-Milwaukee campus seem to take that number as a mere suggestion.
This week's tip comes from Margaret. Margaret said "cars fly down Edgewood Avenue" and she thinks that UWM students are the ones who need a lesson.
But, Margaret's neighbor, Susan Lofton, believes college kids are only part of the problem.
"We've lived here... for 33 years and the problem is chronic year round, not just during the school year."
On a lunch hour visit to the neighborhood, Speedbusters found plenty of drivers ignoring the posted limit.
