Speeders a hazard to kids in this neighborhood

NORTH TOLEDO (WTOL) - Residents along the 100 block of Gradolph want drivers to slow down -- out of concern for the children in the area. So they contact Call 11 for Action problem solver Mika Highsmith.

"We have over two dozen kids in the whole three-block area," said Leo Moliszewski, who thinks drivers go just too fast down his street. "Kids are going to be kids. They run across the street and there's so many near misses it's just getting out of hand; it's getting terrible."

Instead of following the 25 mph posted speed limit, cars are flying and, with no signage along this street, there's nothing to stop them.

The city says there's not enough commercial traffic to justify additional signage.

Moliszewski isn't taking any chances. He worked up a petition and got 29 out of 30 residents to sign it. Then he submitted it to the city.

Mika contacted the city, and unfortunately they've denied that request based on recommendations from the State. In fact, they say adding signs would make the situation worse.

But law enforcement is aware of the situation and will respond accordingly.
