Baytown Springfield Subdivision - Speed Control

In order to help "speed" up the process of ensuring the safety of our children and homes, Springfield Subdivision members have opted to create an online petition (along with the traditional hand-signed petition) to raise awareness throughout the community . We are asking that our HOA (Homeowner's Association) use our annual fees to purchase "Speed Cushions" for the heavily traveled streets. Below is a paragraph from regarding a method to minimize the risk of harm to our children with the "Speed Cushions" (otherwise known as TRAFFIC CALMING DEVICES): "A more recent study conducted by The American Journal of Public Health found that children living near traffic calming devices were 50% less likely to be hit and injured by an automobile in their neighborhood. Children living within a block of a speed hump were even less likely to be struck by a vehicle. The study found an astounding 53-60% reduction in the odds of injury or death in neighborhoods with traffic calming measures." Please join in the effort to establish a petition to use our annual dues to fund "Speed Cushions".

I have had (3) accidents and (2) dogs hit in front of my house due to the excessive speeds at which people travel down our streets. Several years ago a vehicle lost control and went into my yard and traveled almost the entire length of my property before swerving across the street and doing the same to another neighbor.
