I prefer to do my burnouts in front of the "drive like your kids live here" sign.
I mean, my son loves burnouts.

I welcome the police to sit in my driveway!! I am scared to death that someone is seriously going to get hurt/killed here on West Street!! The speeding is ridiculous. I cringe whenever I see a child walking or biking on this street! I wait to hear the sound of a crash when a car/truck drives by at a high rate of speed!! I had a sign in my yard for drivers going by ( Drive like your kids live here) It.was taken from my front yard....I will be getting another soon because if it just gets one person to slow down than it was worth it!!

I'm sorry but it's a little rediculous that you call your self a good neighbor yet sit there and bad mouth people for buisness that isnt your own. Speeding? Yeah thats not good and i agree someone can get hurt. But as for burn outs? Thats their driveway, thats their house, their family paid for it just as you paid for yours and im sure youbdont ask a neighbor before you decide to noisily mow your lawn at any hour you please. And beng bullies? Half of them are really great people that would give you the shirt off your back. Its not beingn neighborly when you sit there and point out what everyone else is doing wrong but cant admit to the things you may do to inturupt others lives. They arent hurting you by doinng burn outs or by hanging in a garage. I understand the speedihg but why sit there and complain and point out their flaws and habbits when im sure your hands arent always the cleanest.

redneck loser,you are NOT all friends on west st. I know because i live here and you are the minority. do you really believe us good people like your type? you are all trouble makers who still live in your mommys basement,never grew up and have no goals in life..and we can make that judgement about you all just by watching you drive by acting like the babies that you are. normal good folks KNOW what a good neighbor is...all of your parents never taught you that. And you will most likely pass that on to your children,a shame indeed
Sounds like a bunch of babies on here using the term bullies, take your sensitivity and shove it. Although you have your heads up your rears to deep to remember your 20s, some people are still trying to enjoy their youth. You're in an area that's known for agricultural history. You have to expect trucks, tractors, atvs etc. hauling ass down the road on a regular basis. If you don't like it, maybe you should consider moving somewhere with people in your own peer group, such as a retirement home.

I know I only live in 2 room tent(approx 36sq ft) behind a race shop on west st, but I feel I'm part of this "neighborhood" because of it. My question is has anyone else been noticing the dog shit epidemic taking place on our street?! I mean damn man, people are just walking their dogs letting them shit wherever they want, we've got a fox or 2 shitting where they please, coyotes dumping all over, a pack of 4-5 wolves doing work right where out kids play! I mean for what it's worth the other night I was playing go fish with my tent mate Arthur and I heard moaning and a big howl and outta nowhere the was an 8ft maybe taller Sasquatch(yeti, Bigfoot, etc) just taking a big old chog in the middle of the street, I couldn't believe my eyes!! We gotta come together as a neighborhood and start a shit watch because it's getting outta control

Thanks, concerned tent resident

To girl with a truck and honest opinion.burning rubber in your own driveway.? Fine! But don't keep going into the road when little kids and others are walking along. KEEP IT in YOUR driveway. Seems you dont get it either like a lot of people here have been trying to get you all to understand.ITS ABOUT THE SAFETY OF LIVES,CHILDRENS SAFETY.WHAT PART DONT YOU UNDERSTAND? its looking here like the friends of the truckers only care that someone said something about their ROAD BULLIES and all you can say is "they would give you the shirt off their back".And that IS a noble quality,but if you'"re going to give someone the shirt off your back,then how about driving safely on the road
? You cant pick and choose . Honest opinion, are you a bully yourself? NO we DONT have to expect trucks,tractors,atvs etc. to HAUL ASS DOWN THE ROAD ON A REGULAR BASIS because we have an agricultural history. Almost everyone whos posted here at least agrees that speeding on this residential street is wrong. in fact im sure all good people agree.
And yet you made that statement. Being aware of and dislike for bullying is not being sensitive,its being a good person. You are absolutely right though about a persons right to enjoy their youth,until it endangers others. These bullies will never grow up with role models like you and some others egging them on and leading them to beleive its ok to act in this manner.

Oh yes it is our business.We have family that live on this street and i feel bad that i didnt believe them about these bullies. i sure do now.its the business of everyone who lives on these two streets. yeah yeah yeah ,they'll give you the shirt off their backs blah blah blah what a joke stop sticking up for these punks still in puberty. hey Christine im feeling sorry for you.Someone violated your space and went on your property and stole your sign.Trust me it had to be someone in the neighborhood.Outsiders just dont stop their car,come on your property and steal a sign.This is personal. and what the tent dweller said is true.Poop everywhere.Good luck to all of you that give a good hoot for the welfare of your neighborhood.

We're all worried about the kids' safety.
Here's a tip, if your kid isn't old enough to make judgement calls about where to cross the street, where to ride his/her bike, etc, keep them off the damn street....or better yet, stand out there and supervise and make sure they stay in your driveway.
West street isn't a neighborhood, it's not a cookie cutter development, it's not a happy-go-lucky coldesac, it's a public 25mph road that connects two states and is a cut trough for a huge farm that lost access to westerly when boom bridge got closed.....the street is traveled, keep an eye on your kids....a 30 year old 250 pound man could be killed by a smart car doing the speed limit, kids/trucks/burnouts are irrelevant.
Don't be a dumbass, walk on the left side of the road so you can see oncoming traffic. There's plenty of big cities with kids growing up in row houses on 50mph roads, and they don't have these complaints because well, they have a little common sense.
Everyone use your heads, Shut up, carry on and be safe.

get bent get on the stick man and get it right. a neighborhood is an area with neighbors. they exist everywhere and west st. is a neighborhood,even the people who live here say so from what im seeing here.this is also not about little kids making judgement calls on the road.we dont have that problem here. the subject is the same bunch of truckers acting like they own the road .i imagine they do it everywhere they go as a leopard doesnt change its spots just because its in new territory.also what im seeing here is good folks who genuinely care about their neighborhood and sadly im seeing those who come up with excuses for the bullies and they are bullies. i too had to laugh at those give you the shirt off their backs comments. so what !.that doesnt make it better.they are still bullies ! shut up carry on and be safe?? really? it doesnt matter where on this planet we live,we have a right to expect our neighbors to drive safely .and that is common sense...stop making excuses!!

i just read the original post from a few years back and i didnt realize til now that it does not say the bullies are burning out in their own driveways and keeping it in their own driveways.It says burning out and flying down the road.Yet a lot of us were mislead by winner on west st who kept it up about burning out on a persons own property which is not the same as burning out of your driveway and flying down the road which is dangerous and THAT people is what has really been going on but a lot you didnt get it because you got so wrapped up defending these truckers,and yes im sure most of us know who we are referring to that same bunch who have been doing this for years and live on west st. none of us would be here posting if this problem didnt exist and it looks like a lot of people agree theres a problem and where the problem lives. of course people from other ares use west st and abuse it ,that happens in many places but it pathetic when your own neighbors and even more pathetic when the older ones who should be role models make comments that ok this mentality. whew
