Speed bump for Walker Ave to save lives!
Hello neighbors- For those who live on or near Walker Ave between Banbury and The Alameda/ Sherwood, you are very familiar with the cars that regularly drive far above the 25 mph speed limit, easily going 60 to 70 mph. This is incredibly dangerous for the residents of Walker Ave as well as the many pedestrians who walk there and other drivers who are respecting the law. Too many times I have been passed across the double lines after signaling to turn into my driveway. And on a daily basis- many times a day- there are near crashes at the intersection of Walker and Chinquapin because of speeding cars.
The good news is that after many attempts, we finally have a real opportunity to get a speed bump. You may have noticed the major sewer line replacement project the city is conducting along the Chinquapin stream. The last leg is to cut across Walker Ave to connect the city sewer line with the county sewer line. That means that they will dig up the road (it is already closed as of July 7th) and have to repair and repave it. So.... this is the time to demand they put in a speed bump!! Please sign the petition and add your address in the comment box ASAP and share with your neighbors, especially those on and near Walker Ave. I will send this petition to the Director of Transportation for Baltimore City.
Thanks for your help! And please share this with your neighbors-- the more signatures we get, the better!
