officials say they're receiving widespread complaints of reckless driving, especially in
neighborhoods around schools.
The complaints include reports of speeding and motorists blowing through crosswalks and failing to stop at stop signs.
The problem is particularly pronounced around schools at start and stop times, which town officials say is especially troublesome because that's when children are making their way to and from school on bikes and by foot.
"We continue to hear from residents about speeding issues, as well as poor driving habits," a town-issued press release said.
Residents report that these poor driving habits are widespread and very scary for pedestrians, bicyclists and other drivers.
Town officials are offering the following traffic safety tips:
Leave several minutes early for your destination so that you don’t feel the
need to rush.
• Stop completely at stop signs; don’t assume that someone isn't going to be coming from another direction.
• When driving through residential neighborhoods, respect the fact that speeding through these areas endangers pedestrians, children and pets.
• Respect the neighborhoods around schools; drive carefully and park legally.
• Don’t believe that this is somebody else’s problem – we all need to be part of the solution.
