Petition For the Installation of Speed Humps in Eagle Ridge Golf Community
WHEREAS, the posted speed limit on all streets within the Eagle Ridge Golf Community is 25 miles per hour, and
WHEREAS, vehicles - golfers, school buses, commercial vehicles, construction vehicles, and, yes, even residents - rarely travel at, and often far in excess of, the posted speed limit, and
WHEREAS, many homeowners are very concerned for their safety while working in their yards near a street, for the safety of children playing in yards or on public sidewalks, and for the safe entry onto a street when backing vehicles out of driveways, and
WHEREAS, the continuous enforcement of existing laws and ordinances regarding speed limits in a community as large as Eagle Ridge is difficult, if not impossible, and
WHEREAS, when designed and installed properly, speed humps will reduce vehicle speeds to 15-20 mph at the hump and 25-30 mph between humps in a series, now
THEREFORE, the following petitioners ask that the Eagle Ridge Golf Community Homeowners Association Board of Directors make a formal request of the Town of Garner to conduct a study of the optimal placement, size, and cost of speed humps in Eagle Ridge and install speed humps on neighborhood streets based on the results of that study.
