Little update given it seems I'm not the only one with this sort of issue.
So Town traffic Safety committee met in January we had 20 neighbors show up to my surprise and theirs! The whole meeting was moved to a larger room to fit everyone. What was really interesting was that we had several neighbors who had lived here for 30-40yrs commenting that its worse than they have ever seen and some other parents explained that they now drive their kids to school because they will no longer walk or ride bikes ie safety issue. I was pretty impressed with the the turn out as was the traffic safety review committee.
The town just purchased its own speed tube system and had set it up clear up at the end of the neighborhood where it dead ends even there the data showed 53% of the vehicle traffic was over the 25mph speed limit and due to the location they missed about 50% of the traffic which feeds in from another residential street closer to the schools you could view it as sort a the center crossing point for half of the homes in the housing area which was missed. So it was determined that they would set out the speed tubes in a better location per instructions from the neighbors. Second in command Police officer was attending and all of explained to him that everyone knows they sit up on the main feeder road which has proper paint markings, side walks and bike path that is not part of the road etc - we pointed out that its well known that people race through the neighborhood on two streets to by pass the police sitting out on the main drag and to obviously speed to save time etc. I told them they could sit on the same cross through street they do now except just park at the other end which sits on the road all of these people race down ;-) he laughed and agreed they needed to mix up their places they park. One neighbor offered up her driveway which Police can use if you give them permission.
Anyway so slow progress taking place its been a year and a half since starting this process with the town.
I'm finally getting around to setting up my security camera system trying to sort out camera location thats not blatantly obvious but can still capture enough vehicle detail to get license plates while also monitoring the front of my home - our front yard is on the inside of a gradual bend and is about 200ft of curb so with the right location one or two cameras can cover the entire length of our property and also get a pretty good view of the vehicles going up and down the street. So in the process of trying to sort that out. I have a couple of bird houses which are now modified to house the cameras ;-) Just need to paint bird houses and figure out where and how to mount them.
They would have come in handy this weekend three neighbors within a the house span on our street including my self were walking no side walks so in the street when a car came skidding around the corner screeching tires blasting up the street all of us yelling at the driver. Too damn fast to catch the plate! Camera would have been great for that!
However I rolled through the HS parking lot this morning and found the car and got the plate ;-) Just informed the police chief he needs to have a little talk with the kid driving it and the parents.
