Speed Limits
By Libby Oaksmith


May 09, 2009

I have read the previous two letters and agree with both of them. In 2000, I wrote a letter to the Daily News asking drivers to please slow down. I too live in the same area as Jennifer, only right across from the ball park.

In my letter, I was pointing out that there were more walking tour signs in our neighborhood than SLOW CHILDREN AT PLAY signs. I believe one more was added to our whole street. I would love to see speed bumps added to the beginning, middle and the end of the ball park area. Certainly if our city can go out of their way to prepare streets etc for tourists, they should also make the streets safer for our children.

Thank you.
