Extra Enforcement Added To Richland Neighborhood After Neighbors Complain
RICHLAND, Wash. - People have complained about speeding in Richland so now police are taking action.
They're planning extra emphasis for the next six weeks. It'll happen at on Westcliffe Drive.
Police say after several complaints from area neighbors they've collected data in May showing that there are a lot of people speeding.
Neighbors said drivers go well over the posted 25 mile an hour speed limit. Kristen Fox said, "At night you hear people pealing out heading down and it has actually woken us up a couple of times in our house."
Fox says she's concerned about her children's safety when they go for walks on the road.
Neighbors have been calling police for the past few months.
After the six week enforcement period police will compare the data from May to see if there has been any improvements.
