"WHERE'S THE FIRE?"

        Sounds familiar, doesn't it? That's because you've probably
heard it said in a movie, where the police officer pulls some speeding
driver over to give him/her a ticket.

        Some of us, your fellow residents, have been wondering the
same thing; why has there been such an increase in the number of
speeding cars on Lynn Avenue, Cross Way and Todd Avenue?

        People are concerned for their children and pets, and with good
reason. Speed DOES kill.

        Now that the nice weather is here, more people; children, se-
niors, everyone who can, want to be out-of-doors, on the street, walk-
ing, playing and enjoying spring and summer. Since we have no con-
tinuous sidewalks, we must walk in the street, and we need to look
out for each other.

        Let's slow down! The world's quick pace sometimes gets to us,
and before we know it, we're caught up in it and going at break-neck
speed. The maximum speed on residential streets is 25 m.p.h. or
slower, whatever is SAFE. NO speed over 25 m.p.h. is safe.

        Speeding cars ALSO contribute to the noise level, and
sometimes can be heard even through double-paned windows.

        Your Neighborhood Association asks you to please gently re-
mind your visitors and delivery people, also, to go slowly in our
neighborhood. Thanks for your help.
