Re “Residents can get speed humps put in, if they foot the bill” (Page 3A, Nov. 28): I don’t know if reporter Ken Carlson agrees or disagrees about the cost of speed bumps in our city. As far as I am concerned, us citizens pay sales taxes, property taxes and probably other taxes we don’t know about to improve our streets. For example, why did the city do all that work on College Avenue?
I live on Palmilla Drive, just off Tully. When drivers drive south or north on Tully, they come down my street like a bat out of hell; I’m talking about 60-70 miles per hour. We need speed bumps, which they city should pay for. Why should homeowners pay for it?
During the summer there are quite a few kids on the street; will it take having a child killed to wake up our city? Give me a break. We need speed bumps on our street before someone gets killed.
