Dear Mayor McCormac,

We have had numerous incidents on West Park Ave.  Parked cars and pets that have gotten loose have been hit by cars that are speeding, careless driving and not paying attention to what is around them.  Some don’t even bother stopping. This seems to be an ongoing problem that is not being taken seriously by town officials despite complaints and requests for speed bumps or some type of traffic safety solution for the neighborhood.  There are other streets in the neighborhood that seem to have the same issues.  Such as Tappan, Jansen and E Woodbridge Ave to name a few.

By ignoring the fact that this street is being used as a cut through with people speeding and having total disregard for the residents, it seems as though our quality of life, property and lives are not important enough to find a resolution.  The police are well aware that the area is a problem and it is not being addressed nor is any action being taken.

We have children in the neighborhood and this is a dangerous situation.  It is only a matter of time before something disastrous happens.   We pay high taxes and when residents complain about something that put lives and property at risk it should be addressed immediately instead of disregarded and ignored for years.

We should be able to feel safe getting in and out of our cars when parked on the street and not have to worry about the children being in danger of being hit by a car when they are playing, riding their bikes or walking to and from school.    Many of us have ring doorbells or security cameras that can provide video of drivers traveling well over the 25 mile an hour speed limit.  There have been far too many incidents  for it not to be recognized as a hazard prone area with little to no enforcement to ensure safety for the residents and their property.  

We are bringing this to your attention so a solution can be found and we can feel safe in our neighborhood.  We hope you will take this under consideration due to the seriousness of this matter that is just getting worse.

Thank you for your time.
