Cars Speeding, a speed bump is neeed.
Slowing speeds to levels that are appropriate for a residential neighborhood would dramatically reduce the risk of injury and property damage and increase quality of life within the neighborhood.
This should be done both with posted signs as well as re-engineering techniques (which, contrary to the city's assertions, do not need to be expensive to install).
Appropriate speeds are well defined by many progressive local and national governments throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. For example, 20 mile per hour speed limits are increasingly required in residential neighborhoods throughout the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. In Darien and Greenwich, Connecticut, the lives of children are apparently more valuable than they are in the New Haven area, so many residential areas have 15 mile per hour design speeds. In other words, there are many examples that Hamden could draw from if it were to adopt a policy that placed the needs of residents of all ages and abilities above the needs of speeding drivers.
Unfortunately, until this happens, we will continue to see speeding and severe crashes and pay a hefty price for them.
Sorry, this issue does not have any images or videos.
