I seldom drive out past the Jamestown Hospital, but when I do, I slow down to near the posted speed limit of 15 MPH. Every time I do that, someone gets right on my bumper and almost pushes me over the hill. Yesterday a lady in a big black SUV even tooted her horn at me because I was going about 20 mph. What gives with that?

Just wave back at her and smile and keep obeying the speed limit.

Last year, I slowed down to about 20 mph and as soon as I topped the hull, the guy behind me passed me on the double yellow line and sped away. SOME PEOPLE!!!!!

If you drive toward town from the Crossroads, here is a neat trick......Floor it coming up the hospital hill and ignore the speed limit sign. If you've got a big engine, then you can go airborne and not come down until you are almost to Burdens.

There is a speed limit there and the police could make lots of money if they would patrol that little section of road. Lots of ticketts more money for the county. ;)

There is a race track on Mcgee St.The cops don't seem to care. Wait til someone looses their life.In the mornings and afternoon people run wide open thru there.

On Sat I was going on the by-pass and actually going 60 in a 55 mile zone, I had two diferent pick-up trucks (one black and one red) pass me and then pass each other. It was obvious they were drag racing and going well over 80 mph. The red truck almost hit a car that had pulled out during the Fast 5 reenactment but thankfully no one was injured this time. When they exited the by-pass, one went toward Allardt and the other toward town.
I was going to call the cops but had left my cell phone at home. Right after the episode, I saw a cop drive by Wal-Green's and of corse, they missed the idiots reckless behavior.

I know this is a different area than the orginal post ad I normally do not call police on speeding or reckless drivers but these guys could have easily killed themselves or someone else. No regard for others - just too interested in winning a pissing contest.

The cops need to patrol all areas more but esp hospital and around Wal-Mart. Some drivers think they are at Nascar and fly around the paking lots and some do not the concept of right before left or two-way stop sign does not mean 4 way stop sign and will cut off other drivers and then glare when it is their own driving mistakes. But I doubt the cops will ever crack down on these wild drivers.

It's true about speeders in the hospital zone. I have often wondered why this area is not more closely watched. I may be the first one to be ticketed, but I certainly won't be the last. It would be a definite reminder to me to sloooww it down!

You are right about Mcgee Street.I met a white wrecker the other afternoon and it was running wide open. Road is narrow anyways.They need to put a cautian light up on Mcgee and Clark intersection.

Wow...I had not been to the hospital in a while. I noticed the speeders when I was waiting to get out of the parking lot onto 52. The police should enforce this the way they do the school zones.

Why would they try to enforce the speed limit in front of the hospital? They never obey it either! I live down past the hospital so I have to go through there every day. I couldn't count how many times the cops come cruising through there, never going the 15mph speed limit!

They should enforce it because it might save someone's life. When a speeder crashes into an ambulance, then they will wish they had.
