NORTH CANAAN — Growing incidences of drivers exceeding the speed limit on local streets were discussed at the Monday, May 6, meeting of the North Canaan Board of Selectmen.

Nights and weekends are the problem times, First Selectman Charles Perotti noted during discussion. Although speed bumps were seen as a possible solution, the selectmen agreed to begin by installing additional signs at the two locations.
