VoterCam Proposal: Speed-Bumps on Mt. Adams. Please leave comments below, and take a quick moment to fill out this survey so we can follow up with you.Click here to take survey
Rationale: Cars are getting side swiped and residents, including children, are at risk of being hit as vehicles fly down the hill, especially on Carney Street which winds around the corner from Pavilion on a steep downward grade.
Recent Painpoint: This weeked our Honda Civic Hybrid, equiped with two child seats for our twins, was severly damaged by a reckless driver, presumably drunk, who side-swiped the car at 1:30 AM. A witness saw the driver, a relatively young white woman driving a white four-door sedan, speed down Carney from the Mt. Adams bar district, hit our car, and then immediately flee the scene of the accident. This is the third time one of our cars has been damaged by cars speeding down the hill. Many other residents have expressed similar frustration.
- Letters will be sent to City Councilman David Crowley, Mayor Mark Mallory, and the Police Liason for Mt. Adams urging that speed bumps be put on Carney.
- A petition will be shared among local residents to build support for speed bumps.
- The issue will be raised at the next Mt. Adam's Civic Association Meeting
