Woodland View Estates - Reduce Speed Limit to 25 MPH
Woodland View Estates is a small neighborhood in Parkesburg, PA with single family homes. For many years the speed limit has been 35 MPH, however, with recent shifts in demographics we have an increase in very young children and active residents in addition to an older population that have slower reflexes.
The 35 MPH speed limit is too fast for both the young residents on bicycles and running and playing, and older residents that are maintaining their health by walking. On several occasions we have experienced cars and trucks coming through the neighborhood at or in excess of the posted 35 MPH speed limit and it’s a very dangerous speed when people are walking or playing in the neighborhood.
We are petitioning the West Sadsbury Township to lower the posted speed limit in Woodland View to be 25 MPH and are seeking supporters for that cause.
