I get an anxiety attack when I see a car speeding down our street. The drivers have no care as to who else might be around. They rounded the corners at 20, 30 MPH.
I am tempted to create traffic signs with one that specifically reads “slow down, you idiot” like the one I made for this post from the safetysign.com. I have not done so because I am afraid that these idiots won't even notice.
Luckily, last year when a traffic accident happened it was not on my street, but the next street from my house. I am saying that sarcastically, because although I am glad that it was a little further away, it doesn’t change the fact that so many cars still raced down my street. Moreover, the accident had caused major turbulence in my client's family. Nothing happened to the car that hid the 15 years old pedestrian. Obviously, because the driver took off from the scene, leaving behind a paralyzed, brain damaged, wheelchair-bound and incapacitated for life victim. It is going on a full year and neither the police or the family have any idea who the responsible reckless driver was. I know the grandmother of the victim, and this is an absolute true story.
Mean while, my friends told their stories about how bad the parking problem is in their neighborhoods, and how they would love to have “no parking signs” I would imagine that this problem is a hard one to solve, since you really don’t own the streets, but you do need accessibility around your property. It is a problem that they have to deal with every day, and more than once a day. That said, I don’t want either problems, but I am not sure which is worst.
If only everyone take a little time to be a little more considerate and learn to be more courteous, perhaps our world would be a life healthier. Well, I am day dreaming, but waking up to ask you these two questions this week:

1) If the choices were, live on a street where cars are driving too fast, or the constant fight about parking issues around your house, which would you rather live with?
2) What would you do if you accidentally hit someone so badly that caused them to be incapacitated as the 15 years old girl in my post today?
