BLACKWOOD – Vehicles have been seen speeding on the Camden County College Blackwood campus. It’s a problem on many levels, the campus’s public safety director said recently.
For one, it displays a lack of knowledge by drivers, said Public Safety Director Steve Hetherington. For another, it results in accidents, a matter about which some students have expressed concern.
An average of three car accidents on campus were reported each week, Hetherington said. The accidents only caused damage to the vehicles and did not result in injuries to people. Most of the drivers involved in the accidents were caught and when caught they confessed to the accidents. Most had little experience driving in parking lots such as those on campus.
Some of the speeding on campus is because students who are running late to class rush to find a parking spot near the building where their class is, Hetherington said.
Hetherington said chronic speeders will be stopped and cited.
