Reader says Sad fact is many of the ‘speeders’ in the morning are parents taking their kids to school

GW

Sad fact is many of the ‘speeders’ in the morning are parents taking their kids to school. The peak for speeding is 7:45-7:55. Facing the possibility of being late for GW, they avoid the traffic light by cutting over to N Hillside and then crossing over W Ridgewood to get to S Hillside and the entrance to the West Side Pres. parking lot. They sometimes take the bump on S Hillside so fast I can hear the car scraping on the ground. Every single day this happens and there is never a cop to witness it. Only a matter of time before there is an accident. Drivers need to slow down and walkers need to cross the street with caution and with their cell phones put away.
