Neighbors Concerned with Speeding Drivers in the Crescent Valley Neighborhood
If you spend some time in Crescent Valley, you’ll see faded stop signs falling over and hear the steady stream of cars passing by.
Neighbors say they are concerned that if something isn’t done.. someone will get hurt.
The speed limit near the four way stop on Matchett Road says 30 miles per hour, but neighbors say people go much faster than that.
Neighbors say the peak speeding hours range between 5 a.m. to 7:00 in the morning to 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Residents are asking the county to do something about the speeding problem whether it’s adding more patrols or even speed bumps.
Chief Deputy Roy Boyd says the Sheriff’s Office is aware of the issue, however getting out more patrols in the area is more difficult than people think.
“Unfortunately we have limited resources due to the budget cuts that have hit us in recent times. We would like to be able to put more resources out there, but with the resources we have the deputies are out there doing the best that they can.”
Boyd says he is working with commissioner Danny Garcia to upgrade infrastructure in the Crescent Valley neighborhood.
