Description

An almost nightly happening, some reckless fool races his bike, and sometimes his friend follows in a car, down the one way street, the wrong way. Since there is a bend 1/2 way down the street from the entryway, this creates a blind spot for anyone driving down the street correctly, and the potential for a serious accident. Also, with children, pets and elderly/disable residents, there is the question of speeding in general, and whether someone is able to be alert to the cyclist coming at them from the wrong direction, thus another potential danger. (Never mind area pets!) It happens almost every evening, especially on the weekends, around 8 ish...And whoever the guilty party is, they seem to stop midway down the block. I worry about this because with the potholes on our street, we already have the obstacle course challenge, and now we have the kamikaze cyclist added on.
