Phillippi Gardens Traffic Calming
As residents of Phillippi Gardens we are concerned of the constant speeding and heavy traffic through our neighborhood on Constitution Blvd and Britannia Rd. The cars and heavy trucks speeding through our neighborhood are putting us and most of all our children at constant risk. It is almost impossible to retrieve mail or cross the street but most of all our children are not free to go outside due to the imminent danger of being stuck by a speeding car. Most drivers speeding through are also distracted by the cell phones, eating or music blasting showing no care for safety.
It is not acceptable that a residential street have a speed limit of 30 mph and that trucks are allowed to drive through. Small accidents occur everyday but are not reported by the drivers as they are at fault. Shrubs, poles, mailboxes are often hit and knocked over due to speeding.
We have asked Sarasota County to intervene several times to protect its residents but have always been turned down.
We demand Sarasota County put in traffic calming measures to guarantee the safety of its residents and most of all our children.
