A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
Police in Sylvania
Township are targeting drivers off of King Road who are using The Meadows
neighborhood to get around construction.
There are two signs at The
Meadows on Whispering Oak that say "Do not enter." The drive is meant to only
be an entrance into the neighborhood, but people have been ignoring the signs
to avoid construction – and they're getting ticketed for it.
Residents in the
neighborhood say they're seeing more traffic and traffic violations recently.
Police say their phones have been ringing off the hook with complaints of
speeding in the area. They say they've ticketed at least a dozen drivers for
using the entrance drive as an exit since the closure of Brint and King.
"It can cause accidents up
there, so it is a safety issue as well and people should just be aware of it,"
said Sylvania Township Deputy Police Chief Ray Carroll. "It might take a little
bit more time, but just try to go around another way."
The police patrol the area
on a regular basis and are now increasing their presence in the neighborhood.
"We are trying to enforce
that area, give out some tickets or warning to try and keep people from doing
that," Carroll said.
Construction on Brint and
King should be complete by August 1. To get around the construction heading
westbound, drivers can take Centennial to Sylvania Avenue. Heading eastbound,
take McCord to Sylvania.
