While I realize that safety is a concern; this action does not just end with the driver. More times than I count, I have had kids run out in front of me without bothering to look.

Look before you cross. Look before you jump...

I agree that 'promising the speed-limit' is a good thing, but... No, the posted speed limit is a 'strong suggestion.' The pledge that people SHOULD be making is 'to observe all the traffic (including--and probably ALWAYS CHECKING FOR FIRST--foot-traffic) and adjust speed-&-direction accordingly.

I say this because the man who briefly killed me on October 30, 1995, was 'doin` the speed-limit.' He had obviously also been fed the 'if you're doin` the speed-limit, you don't have to pay...

people speed down our street all the time and we have children and pets that we dearly love. I am canvassing our neighborhood to get a petition signed to have speed bumps put in. I have been voicefully yelling at them to slow down but they either ignore me or yell at me.
