The West End of Main Street is in desperate need of traffic calming. Most everyone obeys the 25 MPH coming up Main Street where all the shops are, then as soon as they get past the Ellicott Mills light, they think they are out of the city and floor it. The West End is a straight away, and people feel the need to speed. This makes it very difficult and dangerous for residents to cross the street, get into our cars that are parked on the street and even makes me afraid to walk on the sidewalk down towards the town that has no buffer to the cars going 40 or 50 mph. Take a walk down the street and you'll notice the residents park their cars so far onto the sidewalk because we're afraid of having our cars side swiped which happens a lot because of the speeders. Our dog has been hit by a speeding motorist on the street, and the kids in the neighborhood are afraid to cross the street because of how fast people drive. Speed bumps, a camera, anything. Please help.
