Brighton, N.Y. – People living along Warren Avenue in Brighton have submitted a petition to the town board requesting speed bumps.
The move follows the school bus crash in October that injured four Brighton high school students.
Police say speed was a factor.
Since the crash, drivers have continued to tear through the neighborhood.
“You see people go by really, really fast, I see people drive through that stop sign 40 to 50 miles per hour,” said James Sweet, who lives on Warren Avenue.
Brighton Town Supervisor Bill Moehle says parking more officers on the street has not slowed traffic considerably.
“There are still people speeding there and (the police) have been out with a zero tolerance,” Moehle said.
Sweet and nearly every one of his neighbors recently sent a petition to town leaders requesting speed bumps.
Moehle says two separate committees will consider the proposal on November 8 and 13, while the entire board may discuss the option at its meeting November 14.
Currently, South Landing Road is the only Brighton street with speed bumps.
