Homeowners on South Dogwood Trail have long posted a front-yard sign asking drivers on their street to be considerate of walkers, bikers, and children. Today they added another all-caps, bold-faced message to their sign communications:
THIS IS A NEIGHBORHOOD, NOT A CUT THROUGH
If you live on the cut-through route, you no doubt have said or thought about saying the same to drivers who collectively destroy your quality of life during summer weekends with their transient passage through the neighborhood. Perhaps a sign on every yard on the route would attract some attention where attention is lacking. Solidarity works.
Today, as it does every Saturday, The Beacon has written on Facebook about the oppressive traffic experience and invited readers to contribute their comments and observations. Please see https://www.facebook.com/southernshoresbeacon for details.
