Golf carts round the clock, plus speed bumps

“The city is full of stop signs, you might as well get on a bicycle,” she said. “Is it actually necessary? Is it serving the purpose we set it up for?”

Police officer Pam Lewis said “most people think they’re a nuisance,” but Clarice Powell, a resident who has long asked for speed bumps and other traffic control measures in her neighborhood and elsewhere, objected.

“We hear that people are tired of people speeding up and down the streets,” said Powell.

Harrison Jones rose to object to speed bumps, which he said are tearing up his vehicles.

“I had to put in $1,800, I had to replace my struts, for the same speed bumps in front of my house,” he said. “Every time you ride up on those things, you’re about to tear your car apart. They have been a nuisance to me and I have grandchildren. We need to watch our children.

“I think we have too many stop signs. There’s just so many, I’m stopping, going, stopping, going,” he said. “Give us just one street to breeze through.”

Jerry Weber, who resides with Powell on Frederick Humphries Street, next to the offices of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDOACS), spoke in strong support of traffic control.
