Speeding is one the complaints, but others will be cited as well, according the chief. He said fines vary depending on the speed. Beyond a certain speed is considered reckless driving, Kiely said. The speed limit in Trumbull Center is 35 mph.
Kiely said he would be happy if no tickets were given out, because that means drivers are obeying the law.
"We hope to fail," he said. But otherwise, "hopefully it slows things down."
