Control ongoing speed issues in Brantwood Neighborhood/Highland

This petition had 66 supporters


Many residents of the Brantwood neighborhood are upset at how quickly cars are driving near our homes. We would like Highland's Street Department and Town Council to explore residential speed control options. Some that come to mind are:

  • Speed Bumps/ Speed Humps
  • 15 MPH Speed Limit (with the exception of Lincoln Ave)
  • Signs displaying "Your Speed" 
  • Flashing STOP signs
  • Radar enforced ticketing

I understand some of these items may be costly or make it slightly more challenging to remove snow, however many of these options are in place around the country and provide some much needed safety in their communities.

A notable area of issue is along Parkway Dr, between Woodward and Branton avenues. This is a narrow street that can accommodate only one car at a time and several families have small children in the homes that are along the road. Cars frequently drive much faster than the speed limit when travelling Parkway Dr. I would love to see a speed hump at each intersection of Parkway Dr in this area (a total of 5 intersections).

Reducing the speed of vehicles in our neighborhood will minimize damage from vehicular collisions and lessen the likelyhood of striking a citizen, or even worse striking a child. I hope you agree with Brantwood residents, and will explore ways to keep our families safe.
