As I sit on my front porch watching traffic speeding up and down Nichols Canyon Drive, I am baffled by the many people that drive this road daily. Some of you may not know that the city put a dip in the road to aid with water runoff at Cottontail Dr., but this has resulted in increased anxiety for me and my family.

As I sit and watch I cannot count on one hand how many times I see all four tires of a car come off the ground as local citizens speed through this dip. Some are young teens and some are adults with kids in the car. Some are adults with children on four wheelers and razors.

I have witness a group of teens speed through this dip lose control and crash into my neighbors block wall. I anticipate that my house will be next. I have seen multiple people lose control and luckily for them regain control.

There are kids on this street that run in and out of the road. I ask anyone to park in my driveway just for observation of how a four-way stop sign would help this situation and slow people down. I'm sure a death will need to happen before a simple stop sign would be placed, but for the safety of my family, our home and the homes of my neighbors I am asking that the city look into this and the residents slow down.

Unfortunately the speeding righteous does not stop at your intersection. I live in Ashdown and watch daily the self important ignorant blaze down Nichols.

Here is an idea... the posted mph is there for a reason... it is a neighborhood with lots of children!!! For people who probably have scores of children of their own, you figure it would click to them that maybe a land speed record attempt from Ashdown Forest Rd. to the round about is not a good idea. There is an amazing feature in ALL cars... they are called brakes.. try using them!!
