I live on Spring st, and have for over 4 years. I was just wondering if anyone else lives there and has a problem with the rate of speed these idiots are driving down this one way road?? I have made numerous calls to the police, yet hardly see them patrol this area. I've seen many children, that live on this street, playing in their front yards. If some idiot looses control and ends-up in their yard, a child could wind-up dead. Also, I see many of the same cars, going the wrong way on this road, every day. I have reported this, yet nothing is done. I am beginning to wonder if we do actually have police in PB???? If anyone else has this problem, please contact them and make a complaint.

It would have to be some big shot's kid that gets hurt before anything happens. I don't guess any big shots live in that neighborhood.

Oh yeah, I know exactly what you mean. I see them constantly running the stop sign on Spring & 11th. I have seen school busses, cop,s, ambulance,s and car after car run the sign. I also called to report it but they told me to come in and file a complaint on the city people i seen run it, but that they didnt have the manpower to patrol the area all the time. I say if they put up a traffic cam on the post there at the corner they will rake in the money. It is a matter of time before someone gets killed or hurt really bad.I even had some webcam tape i started to send to the news but afraid of being known and harrassed. so I keep watching all the close calls and hope no-one gets hurt. But yes i know about the speeding cause thats why they cant stop at the sign in time, going too fast...and I have checked myself, the sign is in plain view.

Yeah...also, some I have seen are the hotrod kids, and some adults. Yes..that sign is in plain view, but they choose not to see it. Just wait...some idiot will be going the wrong way, and I will just looking the way they are supposed to be coming, and I will end-up pulling out in front of them. Don't think I won't sue their a$$ so fast that their heads will spin! I you and I both know that all that time we wasted to come in and file a complaint, will be just another paper tossed into a shredder. It makes me mad! Other towns that I have lived it would not have stood for half the sh!t that goes on in this town. I can't wait to move!!

the road use to be 2 way until many of the home owners complained (cryed) and had it changed to 1 way so they could park on both sides of the street and cut it down to single lane traffic. it's one of the oldest and narrowest streets in PB that still has curbs and people with front doors to their homes within 10 feet of the street so it can't be widened. so maybe they should just close it to traffic and let all you lazy b@stards walk to your house from 9th or 67, or park the next street over and walk to your house through the back yard. also, that stop sign is the only sign on spring street from 67 to 9th street so I wouldn't say it's that hard for it to creep up on a driver not real familiar to that area. as far as the speeding, you'll knock the bottom out of a car or a light truck if you go though that 11th and spring street intersection very fast. whaa whaa whaa cry me a river over something more substancial, keep your rug rats in the yard and out of the streets.

Move and quit bitchin. Tell the city to widen the road and move the cars. I have drove thur there myself and people double park. quit bitchin get out there and stand naked and yell slow down and then some will notice and then slow down since your so worried. They put stop signs that helped a little i bet.
