If we're FB friends, you probably know that last week a Camaro with three 16yo boys was racing at 80 mph around the bend on my street, lost control, and went crashing into my front yard and through my tree. They're all okay. Miraculously. They were very, very lucky. And we were lucky that I'd taken the boys to the library right after school instead of straight home or else the timing could have been tragic. I'm having nightmares about the possibilities.
Anyway, now I'm pissed. They're complete assholes that are lucky they didn't kill anyone. (One eyewitness was in front of the house 2 doors down.) That is the busiest time of day on my street for families to be walking along with little ones, pets, bicycles. Ugh. So I want to do something about it. I'd like to write to the city or whatever I need to do to try to get stop signs and/or speed bumps and/or a painted center line down the middle of my street. It's a really wide street with no stops down the entire stretch, and people are always speeding down it. So my question is who do I write? What do I need to do? Do I need to collect signatures? I figured some of you guys might know. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
