Drivers caught speeding throughout Brookfield subdivision

CREATED Jan. 11, 2012 - UPDATED: Jan. 11, 2012

BROOKFIELD- The snow may slow down traffic Thursday, but "Speedbusters" is trying to catch speeders in a Brookfield subdivision.

It looks like a nice enough place, winding streets and wide lawns are what you expect in a quiet Brookfield neighborhood east of Brookfield Road and north of Capitol Dr.

Except this neighborhood is not quiet.  Clark Jester invited Speedbusters out to take a look at what's going on.

He lured Speedbusters here with visual evidence.

TODAY'S TMJ4's Steve Chamraz:
"What is this?"
Clark Jester: "Right down the street here, they went right off the road. Remember that first icy day? They come around the turn and it's terrible."

The speed limit in this subdivision is 25 -- but all the curvy streets and hills mean even that can be too fast at times, especially on the narrow streets in front of people's homes.

The biggest problem appears to be on Imperial Driver where cars work up such a head of steam, they have trouble navigating the turn. When that happens, they wind up off-road."

TODAY'S TMJ4 set up shop with our radar gun and caught all sorts of speeders.
