Some cars come to a complete stop at the large speed bump, but others go way too fast, bottoming out and banging bumpers.
Parents claim the stretch of East 109th Street between Second and Third avenues is like a raceway, even though foot traffic is always heavy.
Community members have submitted a request for those speed bumps to be placed around streets connecting the Hutchinson River and Pelham Parkways to create a ‘slow zone’. If approved this would add the area to the existing 14 Zone program.
“It’s an accident waiting to happen.” That was the word from residents along one Brooklyn block on Monday. They’re worried a newly installed speed bump does anything but make them safer.
