POINT PLACE, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Parents in Point Place are
losing patience for drivers that speed through the area, putting their little
ones in danger.
The speed limit is posted
at 30 miles per hour on 290th Street, but where it curves to Ottawa
River, it's only 20, but residents say many drivers don't follow the signs.
"I'm afraid," said Autumn
Murphy. "I don't know if somebody is going to lose control. They just fly
through the neighborhood."
Some of the streets
residents say are hot spots for speeding include 116th, 293rd
to 109th, and Ottawa River Road, which is near a school.
"The speed limit is 25 and
it is posted, but I bet you – I haven't clocked them or anything – but I bet
you they're at least going 50," Murphy said.
Now parents say they want something
done to slow drivers and keep their children safe.
"I don't know, can they do
speed bumps? Or I would like patrols, maybe," Murphy suggest.
Councilwoman Lindsay Webb
says residents can start a petition that would go to the city's Division of
Transportation. The petition would require signatures from 25 percent of
residents on the street in order for the department to launch a study. Then
traffic has to approach 1,500 vehicles, and 15 percent of the traffic must be
going over 35 miles per hour. But that's not all.
"We have speed petitions
come, and pass all the warrants," explained Dennis Lechlak, with the Division
of Transportation. "But we go back out to the neighbors and petition them, and
we don't get the 70 percent agreement that they all want that."
Police also say a request
from neighbors for enforcement is something that they can and will do to help.
