Too many people speed down S 8th st, a neighborhood street. Now that the new Elementary School is in and the pool remodel is done I believe we need to add some speed bumps/humps and a light up crosswalk to protect the children in our community!

I live by the pool and have seen first hand the increasing number of cars that speed down the street going 35, 45 MPH or more. To many people use S 8 th st as a main road when it’s not, they use S 8th instead of 6th because they can speed without getting caught. Yesterday the second parked car in 2 months was hit right in front of my house. The car that was hit was hit with such force that it moved it more than a car length. My fear is one day it will be a child, my child or YOURS!!! I do not want to hold a child as he/she dies in my arms. I do not want to watch a parent lose it when they realize it’s their child in the street. If something is not done I fear this will happen sooner than we realize!!! With the new school and the pool the amount of foot traffic has increased 100% in the 4 years we have lived here. In the last year or so the amount of traffic and speeders has increased as well. 

Let’s do something before it’s to let, a little change like speed bumps and humps will go a long way as well as a light up crosswalk near pool!!! 

TIA
