We love our beautiful green neighborhood of Blue Bell Hill but reckless and illegal speeding in our quiet community is both a danger and a blight. We call on our elected leaders and law enforcement to finally take action to stop the speeding. On a daily basis, cars, trucks, city vehicles, and SEPTA , LUCY and school buses regularly disregard the 30 mph speed limit on Walnut Lane and Wissahickon Avenue at dangerous speeds, illegally passing, ignoring red lights, and disrespecting our neighborhood without consequence.

These streets are home to hundreds of seniors, children and families, and are wholly residential. They are also major bike commuter and recreation roads regularly used by cyclists. Our homes have been damaged by cars out of control, our cars parked at our sidewalks have been totaled, and our lives are often in danger when simply crossing the street to our parks or to get to the bus or train, including many seniors who rely on public transportation each day. This is our neighborhood, not a speedway. Despite many complaints to and requests of elected officials and law enforcement to take action, nothing has stopped the speeding. It's time for action.
