533 Windham Road Willimantic, Ct., 06226
Two different school buses stop here every morning and afternoon. There was already one accident last year in which someone's car, who HAD stopped for the bus, was rear-ended by an oblivious driver who was speeding. Said car ended up in my front yard. We are between 2 hills, so people heading North on 32, at 50+mph, cannot see someone stopped, and people heading South on 32, at 40+mph, also cannot see someone stopped. And someone, namely a school bus, IS stopped AT LEAST 4 times a day. With children disembarking. And having to CROSS Route 32 at this dangerous spot. I have a 5 year old whose bus stop is here. Other children are older, BUT THEY'RE NOT FAST ENOUGH TO BEAT A CAR! The speed limit from the Frog Bridge all the way down to Apollo Pizza needs to be changed. There is NO rationale for having a 40mph speed limit IN TOWN next to the ball fields, a school, etc. If the speed limit is 40mph then the drivers are driving 60+. And the speed limit changes to 50mph at the bottom of the hill by Landon Tires. Change the speed limit, please, to 25 or 30mph and ENFORCE it. None of our children has been hit yet, let's make sure they aren't. This is an accident waiting to happen, again. Let's make sure our kids don't have to dodge cars! This is a residential street here, please slow down the traffic.
