In need of advice. We live in Kingsfield subdivision off Hamburg Pike. The speed limit is 25 mph, but we have people driving easily over 45-50 mph. We have called the police to request an officer sit, this has happened 1 time. We have also called the mayors office who lied and said they are going to put up orange cones to see if this slows them down, never happened. Our neighbors have even recorded these people on video and have offered to show it to prove our point, no response. We have even followed cars and have noticed they live in a bordering subdivision and use our street as a short cut. There was a barrier at one point so you couldnt cut through our neighborhood specifically for this issue and it was taken down, since then traffic has tripled. Most of these "offenders" are young kids and some adults. Im not just a cranky old person, I am a concerned home owner,tax payer, in my thirties who is worried someone is going to be killed, especially a child. I see the Jeff. police always sitting in a parking lot or directing church traffic on Sunday (Which takes at least 5 officers...REALLY) I have never seen a Jeffersonville Officer on a traffic stop in the 5 years I have lived here. I just need to know what else there is to do to get something done. Any advice would help, no smarta@$ comments please. Just want to know if anyone else has had this issue with NO results. Maybe I should call the news or go to a City Council meeting. Better yet, I could just start a race strip on my street and charge people admission.

A they won't do a damn thing unless it benefits them its always been that way they protect the criminals and lock up anyone that speaks up against them.

We have the same problem in Sellersburg, we finally got enough neighbors to complain, and we finally got a few traffic patrols to come out. The only downside was they were more interested in writing tickets for failure to come to a complete stop tickets vs. speeding tickets. The speeding tickets weren't as costly as the failure to stop tickets. I explained to the officers that speeding was causing a more dangerous situation than rolloing through a stop sign, to no avail. It slowed them down for a while, but it was short lived, we are right back to speeding again. Good luck with you neighborhood, hope it works better for you.
