Neigborhood Upset with Speeders
WORTHINGTON (Jen French)A Worthington woman has put up a sign in her front yard that urges people behind the wheel to slow down. Neighbors have taken notice, and police have pulled over more drivers.
Last Friday, Karin Demaree said she and her daughter were almost rear ended on Highland Avenue.
"A guy came up--and I had to hit my brakes again otherwise he would've hit us--and Abby was in the back, Demaree said.
After that incident, Demaree put up a handwritten warning sign that reads, Drive like your kids live here. The speed limit on Highland Avenue is 25 miles per hour. After Demarees complaint, Worthington Police have been monitoring the street.
"There's always an occasional car that will go really fast down the street, Sean Demaree, Karins husband, said.
Demaree has ordered five slow down yard signs online. She plans on putting them up as soon as theyre delivered.
"We have a lot of neighbors up and down Highland Ave to support our efforts to make sure the speed is kept to where it should be, Sean Demaree said.
