Mother Concerned About Speeding Cars On Judson
Mother of six Adrienne Vanderbloemen is concerned that speeding cars coming off of Bissonnet onto Judson in West U.’s “chimney” area pose a threat to children playing at Judson Park.
“There have been too many close calls,” Vanderbloemen told council Monday night. She says the lack of stop signs combined with the fact that it is hard to see the park when turning off of Bissonnet make a dangerous situation for children, and even adults, crossing the street –especially during between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on school days.
Vanderbloemen, who has lived on Judson for a year, would like council to look into speed bumps or stop signs in the area. City Manager Michael Ross said that police patrols have been stepped up in the area after city staff received phone calls from several residents.
“I just don’t want one of our kiddos to get hit,” she said. “As much as we try to impress on them to stop and look it, doesn’t always seem to be the case.”
