    Almost 1000 vehicles (including 100 commercial vehicles) use our street as a racetrack each day. Four other nearby streets as well. Police spokesman said to media "there's nothing we can do unless we catch them." DUH! I don't believe that the police can or will do anything so we need other options. Speed humps can help along with no truck signs. Speed cameras would be great and a cash cow for our city but Mass. currently has no legislation. Traffic is a city wide problem as we continue to lose our owner occupied homes which then become rental property which increases traffic and crime which worsens the problem. Chicopee needs to wake up as we our losing our neighborhood identities and becoming more like Springfield and Holyoke.
