I would like to request a blog entry of a suggestion for drivers to consider obeying the speed limit in this area. The area that we live in, the 3000 block, experiences a number of drivers, on any given day, who drive with what seems to be without regard for the speed limit. We see individuals speed up and down this road, racing at times, and even clipping parked cars as they make the curve up toward Discovery Park. It’s dangerous and just plain rude.
Please drive as though your children play in this area; as though your loved ones are making their way across the street, etc. The speeds with which many of the drivers zoom up and down this road are becoming ridiculous; and nearly every weekend we witness what appears to be street racing. We are working to get speed bumps installed, but in the mean time, could drivers please show some compassion.
