Thomasville - The Thomasville Police Department has zero tolerance for speeders on Glenwood Drive. More than 40 people from the area have signed a petition urging the police department to step up enforcement on speeders.

On Thursday, officer used laser radars to detect speeders and automatically ticketed trucks not on official business.

Sgt. Rachelle Denmark says, "This is primarily residential. There's no businesses on this street and there's children playing and people walking and there's a park right up the road and a school up the road and the citizens are very concerned about the speeding. They do not want a tragedy to occur here."

The aggressive traffic enforcement is in conjunction with the Governor's 100 days of Summer HEAT (Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic).
