Support Local Speed Bumps

A neighbor sent us this petition awhile ago and it got lost in the murk of the in-box. Here is his petition and the jist of why it needs your support.

We are residents and friends of Kensington, Brooklyn, concerned about the welfare and safety of pedestrians and cyclists, children and adults, on the block of Ocean Parkway between Church Ave and Caton Ave, on the East side of the Prospect Expressway. Due in part to the unusually long traffic light at the corner of Caton Ave, motorists are constantly speeding down this narrow street, which is lined with residential buildings full of kids and the elderly, and dense parallel parking on each side. This is an incredibly dangerous situation, and there is currently nothing to prevent it from continuing. It is only a matter of time before someone is injured or killed.
