Speeders

To all my neighbors around the C Shop, Sunset and Jackson road…I am working on a petition this month for the public safety. I will be coming around house to house to sign the petition. We need to slow the drivers down, someone is going to get hit or killed. I see alot of drivers speeding over 50 and not stopping at stop signs. I will let you know when I will come around….thank you Bruce7 Oct · 13 neighborhoods in Crime & Safety

Two things. First, it’s not the speed limits that is the issue…it’s enforcement of those limits. If folks are speeding at current limits, they will speed regardless of the limits. It’s too bad that that we can’t have speed cameras that issue tickets for speeders. Second thing for me is the speed limit of 25 on Bay Road to accommodate golf carts is absurd. I’ve not seen on cart on that road.19 hr agoThankReply

Does anyone here remember when the speed limit was always lowered to 10 mph during the summer, on all roads in B.B. Why can’t we just do that again, or maybe 15 mph max.18 hr agoThankReply

It used to be 20 in the Summers and 35 in the winter.. then it was changed to 25 year round.. a deputy told me then that they had more complains when that change was made.15 hr agoThankReply

I also remember the 10 mph in the summer. Way back when. My aunt didn’t believe me, but here is a link that shows the sign (4th row down on the right): http://www.birchbayinfo.org/oldbirchbaymemories.html There are some other great pictures in there that bring back many memories. Having said all that, let’s please not go back to 10 mph. It’s ridiculously show and probably the reason it was not continued.1 hr agoThankReply

If i can find the link, about 10 years ago in Australia, a small town had a serious problem with speeders and ended up placing instant pop up spikes when the road sensors detected a vehicle traveling over 15 kph, it was instantly successful and only stayed installed a couple weeks. After that, their speeding problems magically went away!Edited 15 hr agoThankReply

My 2 cents on all this speeding.. not trying to start a war here or anything. When I used to live along the bay I was always flagged down on along the bay, shintafer and Drayton harbor all over doing a couple miles over. I guess lots of speed experts out there?? and I bet most of them will say I was doing 50 mph or over.. 2-3 mph is not considered speeding so yes Leo will not do anything about it.. all I’ve read here was lots of opions and no facts to bring this to the board. I’m sure some seen wreckless drivers out there and I’ll agree with them but saying one person was doing about 40 on 25 is outrageous basically what I’d say the flaggers would say about me doing 27 on 25 waving there’s hands as if I was doing 4015 hr agoThankReply

Well here is a fact. My wife and I walk down to the C Shop, then back every day. At the intersection of Jackson and Birch Bay Rd. two PU’s, came through. We were standing in the intersection. One North bound. The South bound truck was a Deputy Sheriff. Neither one stopped for us to cross. There is a written Law that states every intersection has an unmarked crosswalk, and you must stop for pedestrians. I turned him in for not stopping and for not going after the other truck, too!!!! There are a lot of things to make people aware of others. Like putting in Lighted Crosswalks! Which there are only two unlighted in 2 miles of beach! Kids are now driving the golf carts, wait till they move up to 4-wheeler’s and Razors! “For every Action there is an equal and opposite Reaction”.6 hr agoThankReply

I agree with you on those lighted cross walks. Not a whole lot of people like to yield to pedestrians along the bay which needs to be addressed.. but the topic here is about speeders.2 hr agoThankReply

Bicycles—-OMG! A whole different topic! They have to be licensed. It really hurts when they run into you. Look everyone is at fault here. When walking I carry a stick! And you know what I will do to a car or bicycle that tries to assault us on the road! People waking have the right away! Period!!!!!4 hr agoThankReply

We moved about 4 years ago. Just walking around we counted 11 cars parked on the streets that did not have current tabs, some up to 4 years old. 5 were Dailey drivers, one had tabs expired 2 months ago, and it was a commercial truck. Now our State Leaders want to raise your tabs to make up the difference—-hellooooo! I sent an email to the Sheriffs Office! Nothing happened!3 hr agoThankReply

I do not support speed bumps. Birch bay is not a gated community. This is a traffic safety issue that should addressed by our elected officials, and enforced by law enforcement.1 hr agoThankReply
