Description

These Lanes are a ONE LANE road, which is perfect for all the residents and folks don't want this to change. However, it's not safe to walk in specific areas on these two roads as cars have limited visibility to simple overgrowth of brush that has has grown horizontally into the roads and needs trimmed back with a tool that reaches higher than a grass cutter. 5/23/12 we had 2 near misses of getting run over by vehicles while we were on foot. We had to JUMP in the bushes as the car did not see us till the last minute. One on Mark, and one on Green. Mark Lane has shrubs hanging out to hit any of the SUVs traveling through along with Green Lane. Narrow roads and branches hang out into the roads, making it impossible to drive to the side or see around them when they are wet and hanging in the roadways. The sharp bend on Mark Lane and after, drivers do not have any visibility or safe viewing area around the sharp bend or after due to the road visibility being hidden from the over growth. Motorists cannot drive to the side to pass another vehicle due to branches and leaves sticking out into the roadway from about shouler high. Therefore, bottom cutters most likely cannot remove these. They must come in and physically trim this. One is required to drive in the middle of the road to avoid hitting the branches. Branches are very bad due to the rain and fast growth without trimming the shoulder height away. This needs to be cleared out and cut back. Corner is now a BLIND corner due to the growth on the inside of the bend. They used to do a better job on this road. This has been bad since the spring of 2011. The residents reported in May, 2011, June 2011, and July 2011. The trees that hang out on the sharp corner of Mark Lane are vines and branches so you cannnot see around the corner for the oncoming traffic. Folks, please take care of this now. 11/19/2010 reported again. Reported once more 5/11, 6/25/11, 7/11, 9/7/11. 5/23/12 reported AGAIN. Very bad across from #2 Mark Lane area. Overgrown from the side trees growing horizontally out. There is NO ROOM to safely walk on the road now. Be careful, it's very easy to get hit by a faster moving vehicle. Also I almost got hit simply waking on Green Lane near #19 Green Lane. Cars cannot see anything coming out of Mark Lane, and it's overgrown with stuff where they are not aware of anything coming down Green Lane (walkers or bicycles). The vehicles cannot see you as you are walking due to all the stuff hanging out in the road near the green corner house. Be very visible as it's easy to get hit here.
