CAPE CORAL, Fla.-- The Cape Coral City Council will discuss lowering the speed limit along a major roadway at Monday night's meeting.
People in the neighborhood say drivers are going too fast along Gleason Parkway--especially between Santa Barbara and Chiquita.
The speed limit is 40 miles per hour-- but neighbors say drivers don't pay attention.
To see if just how bad it is, WINK News fired up our radar gun.
We found some drivers going more than 50 miles per hour.
Neighbors are so fed up they went to door to door getting signatures for a petition.
They want city council to lower the speed limit to 35 miles per hour.
It's only five miles per hour less-- but neighbors say it will make a big difference.
"It's like I live on the expressway instead of a residential neighborhood," said one neighbor.
City council is set to talk about the issue Monday night.
