SPEED BUMPS

Just wanted to clarify the posts on "speed bumps." ... These are being voted on by residents of Pine Chase, Pine Crossing and Whispering Pines. Residents of these subdivisions requested that a study be done by engineers for St. Johns County due to the speeding of other residents and visitors to these neighborhoods. Three meetings were held to fully explain the project. These are not the short speed bumps like you see at the mall. They are called speed humps, or tables, and are longer and wider.

If this passes, there will not be a charge to the residents in these communities. This is through the St. Johns County Traffic Calming program. All ballots must be sent in by Aug. 6.

As a parent of young children, I would ask that you all watch your speed. The new posted speed limit in these s/d is 20 mph. It is few and far between that cars pass my house actually going the speed limit. These speed humps are not only to slow down the adults, but also those "teenage tarts" referred to in a previous blog post.

I don't know why so many people feel the need to spy on others by sitting in their driveway; maybe they feel they are missing something? As a result, the kids play in the street so the parents can socialize and watch them from their perches in said driveway. …
