Several things that I heard at the meeting disturbed me.
"Ask for the moon and take the stars" If we are going to put a plan to the county, I don't believe we should play games. Ask for what you want. Knowing the government if they ask for 35 the county will probably say "Well it looks to us like you need 45!". Just deal straight with people.
I also heard that if you are going the speed limit, the speed humps won't slow you down or impeed you. Now I don't know if the Mountain Park speed humps are correctly made or not, I think I also heard they may not be, but on the way home today I decided to put it to the test.
I drove through Mountain Park and took several of the speed humps at exactly 25 MPH. I felt like I was doing an episode of "Streets of San Fancisco"!
If I hadn't had my seat belt on I would have been flying all over the place. You definitely
have to slow down way below 25, so speed humps WILL put extra wear and tear on breaks, suspensions, etc. to say nothing of the increased aggravation.
This also made me realize that speed humps could actually cause an accident if someone goes over them too quickly and they loose control.
In my opinion, 35 speed humps is ludicrous for a subdivision the size of ours. I also don't believe that we could possibly need them on some of the smaller cul-de-sacs, but it sounded like they would be put in there too, just in case in the future a speeding teenager moves into the neighborhood.
I'm with John, take some stop signs out, maybe put a couple speed humps in if it is truly necessary. As the question is asked in the proxy vote, one would have to say NO. There is no real plan and a lot more work would have to be before submitting anything. 3 speed humps or 35 speed humps is a huge difference in a neighborhood of our size.
Please vote NO until this is better thought out.
