Motor Vehicles Excessive Noise
Motor Vehicles Excessive Noise
¿Por qué es importante esta petición?
We are very concern over the issue of traffic safety and excess Noise from speeding and illegal "cutout" muffler systems on Scottsdale Road, 71st Street, Hayden Road and in the general Scottsdale area. The most affected area is in the intersection of Kieralnd Commons and Scottsdale Quarter. The amount of accidents and Noise is disturbing at all times, even late at night the peace of all residents in the surrounding area.
In the last two years there have been several accidents on the intersection of North Scottsdale and Hayden. We fear it is only a matter of time until there is a pedestrian casualty and with so many new condominiums built around the area, the problem and risks will only intensify.
The loud and illegal cutout exhaust systems which seem to encourage racing and speeding are also extremely disturbing for residents living in the area. But most important the Noise is against State, County and City laws as will be listed below...
Respectfully therefore, we petition the Scottsdale City Council, who are responsible for safety and noise levels on Scottsdale Road to implement at least some of the requests listed for the safety and peace of our community:
-More police traffic patrols, especially on weekend nights and in the morning rush hour
-Designation of the area as a fines doubled "Quiet Zone"
-A Reduced the speed limit from Paradise Road to Thunderbird road (heavy pedestrian area at Kieralnd Commons and Scottsdale Quarter, with lots of children, elderly, residents and international visitors)
-Photo Speed Radar
-Decibel Radar Readers
Thank you for your support in making our neighborhood a safe, quiet place we can call home.
