Description

The blocks between Shawnee and Navajo Streets are very often used as a speedway by motorists. The posted speed limit on this street is 25mph. Cars are often seen speeding on this small one-way street faster than 40mph. The curve at the end of the block is posted at 10mph because it is a blind curve at nearly 90 degrees. It is very rare that a vehicle makes this left turn below 30mph. The stone wall and the steel posts at the curve are struck by speeding vehicles a number of times a year. The poles are painted brown so they are invisible at night. Suggestion: paint white reflective stripes on the poles so that they will be visible at night. Violators should be cited and fined for excessive speed violations.
