Pries Avenue speeder needs to slow down, fix muffler

I’m not sure if anyone else on Pries Avenue cares, but I for one am growing very tired of hearing this one car speed up and down the street at all hours of the day and night. To the driver of the silver car, you need to stop racing up and down the street. You are an accident waiting to happen.

I hear that loud muffler coming down the street and I’m just waiting to hear the crash one of these times. It’s bad enough that you set off some of the car alarms. Mine has gone off at least a half of dozen times. Once at 12:30 a.m., another time it was 4:30 a.m. I must have my keys nearby, so I can shut it off quickly.

We already had one accident on the curve this summer. A couple of summers ago, some idiot came around that curve too fast and lost control; WHAM right into the telephone pole. At the rate of speed you’re going, you’re going to kill somebody or yourself.

Please, for your sake and everyone else who lives on the street, slow down before it’s too late. I haven’t had any luck getting your plate number. When I do, you can be sure that the police will be notified.

Hey, Mr. Mayor, maybe you can put some speed bumps on our street?
