Description

Cars travel at a very high speed in a 30 mile a hour zone. Not that it makes a difference but there are only 2, 30 mile a hour signs on Adams St. between Middle Turnpike and Center St. one at each end.
I don't know how cars can start from the light on Middle Turnpike past our house going as fast as they do, even wake us up in the middle of the night hearing cars making loud noise from speeding.
We can't get out of our driveway at certain times of the day, traffic is backed up past our house from the light on Middle Turnpike. Not often someone will let us out.
When trying to make a left into our driveway, cars have even passed me on the left and many times they sneak past us on the right, up over the curb and almost side swipe us on the right. When coming from Center St. taking a right into our driveway, because a telephone pole is between 2 driveways we have to make a wider swing to avoid the pole and if we wait for traffic to pass coming toward us, cars beep as us, can't they see what we have to do to get into our driveway. Even if no traffice is coming and we are turning they will pass us on the left. Can't they wait.
Beside ambulances that go up our street SEVERAL times a day, cars travel just as fast and do ambulances need to use their sirens from one end of the street to the other even at night.
Seeing I am doing so much complaining, when I learned to drive the rule was if an ambulance or fire truck was coming toward you or behind you we were to pull over and wait for them to pass. I don't know how many times I have pulled over to have cars pass me and keep going. The other day a fire truck was coming toward us on Center St. two cars were behind me. I pulled over, car behind me pulled over the third car passed us both, and before the fire truck passed the car behind me pulled out and came around me. Where did they learn to drive?
I almost got hit one day stopping at a 3 way stop sign. I was going to take a left but had a feeling the car coming toward me was going to fast to stop, yes he never did stop right through the stop sign. I would have gotten hit broad side. I have seen this so many times, what are people thinking. It was also a stop sign in front of a school.
If only a police car would sit on Jarvis Rd. they would make a lot of money on tickets.
