Traffic Rally makes the News

We had great support from MNPD with 3 motorcycle patrols & Sgt. Hume in a patrol car. Several tickets were written but that was not the purpose of the rally. The purpose was to draw attention to the speed limit and ask drivers to slow down & be careful of pedestrians.

You can see the news clip here on the updated Caldwell-Abbay Hall site.

There were more Neighbors out there than they showed. CAHNA Members were at multiple locations in the neighborhood. There is another Rally planned for next Monday.

The meeting locations are:

  • Approximately 306 Lynn Drive (Lynn Drive between Abbay and Danby)
  • The corner of Wauford and Lynn Drive
  • Approximately 332 Gaywood Drive (the corner of Gaywood and Binkley)

If you are interested in joining the next rally get details at


Channel 4 also did a report read it here.
