Speedy drivers are disturbing the peace in Cape Coral neighborhoods. Today residents are hoping a Transportation Advisory Meeting will slow drivers down. Our Kyle Jordan is live in the Cape with the details.
We're at the corner of Southwest 28th Street and Skyline Blvd. 28th St. connects to Chiquita Blvd and drivers have used this as a cut through for years. The city has tried to stop speeders through here before. We were here in 2009 when the city put up barricades at a canal, to close the road. But they didn't stop drivers. Some would weave through the barricades and keep going. Eventually, the signs would be moved completely. They were even tossed in the canal. Those barricades are now gone completely, but neighbors say the problem still exists. They are taking their complaints to the Transportation Advisory Committee today. And this is not the only area where people are complaining. Neighbors have said drivers are routinely racing through areas like this at 50 to 60 mph. The speed limit on this road is 30 mph. The Transportation Advisory Committee meets at 9:00 today and we'll be there to follow any developments.
