    Either way……………..people travel way too fast in this area ALL THE TIME!! Let this be a reminder for people to slow down because it is summer. I have seen numerous cars today flying down our roads. Even a motorcycle traveling at high rates of speed. Are we all in such a hurry that we cant follow the speed limits set in place? This is a residential area. Nobody treats these roads as such!!

      As soon as I read it I was baffled! It’s not even close to what happened, the only part right was the location and the driver was not cited for the accident, Bc she was not speeding!
