The Pittsburgh neighborhood is taking issues into its personal fingers to comprise velocity points – WPXI

PITTSBURGH – For 20 years, residents have struggled to get something done on their street before a life is lost.

People blow right through the stop signs. Also, two children have been hit by cars on Jacksonia Street in the past decade.

“People fly by; 50-60 even faster than that, ”said resident Rebecca Tardy-Brown.

Frustrated neighbors said they were tired of waiting, so they went to Amazon and ordered something we didn’t even know could be bought – a speed bumpers.

They hammered the seven stakes into the asphalt themselves.

The neighbors said they hope the speedbump stays. But if it has to come out, they hope the city can use one for them.

“One of my neighbors on the street has already asked where they can get one! I think it’s kind of a neighborhood feel, ”said another concerned resident.

We reached out to the city to ask if neighbors can install their own speed bumps or if they can be cited for it. We didn’t hear back.
