We don't need to wait for someone to die or get seriously injured to do something about this. Let's at least try to mitigate this by forcing fast drivers to slow down for a speed hump, if not for anyone or anything else. I don't like speed humps either, but hear me out on this one.

More and more families with children who like to go out and play live here...and I'm talking good, old-fashioned outdoor play like back-in-the-day! Kids will be kids and that means they are riding bicycles, running, playing ball...remember that? And yes, unfortunately, in the street (at least they are when riding their bikes).

This really happened just a few days ago, but it all took place in a matter of seconds: I saw a kid peddling a bike in the 2000 block of Harman Ave. He naturally moved alongside the parked cars as a driver sped through towards the boulevard. The driver didn't slow down and I could hear the car as it accelerated all the way from the stop sign on Tolley, but I couldn't tell you if he even bothered to stop at Carroll. The look of panic on this child's face had me fearful for him as this man sped by. What if this child were your son/grand-baby/nephew??

That's bad enough, but there's more, like the time earlier this year when our truck had been side-swiped due to some outsiders who sped down the block to fight one of the neighbors. Another hit-and-run on our SUV occurred due to a drunk-driver.  These two incidents could've still happened with speed humps, but that doesn't mean they couldn't have been prevented either.

I'll be the first to say that I don't like speed humps, but the way some people drive around here, they are totally worth it because life is irreplaceable!

Please sign this petition to show the members of the Morrell Park Community Association and the Baltimore City Department of Transportation that we support the request for a traffic calming study to obtain speed humps. THANK YOU!!!

Respectfully,

A Harman Ave Resident of Morrell Park
