The Garden section has become more populated with families and children as has the traffic. There are no stop signs, speed limit postings, yeild signs or caution childen/pedestrian signs posted nor are there any ordinances in this area.
Cars and trucks have been sighted speeding through these residential areas with speeds estimated to be 40mps. There is a large population of children and something must be done before another child is injured or even killed.
Several attempts have been made to urge the town officials to take action dating back to December 2004, yet nothing has been done.
Children are in danger while playing outside, walking home from school or simply being near the roadway and since there are no sidewalks, this is unavoidable.
We, the undersigned residents and families of the Garden Section of Hopatcong, NJ urge town officials to take action and do something to improve the safety of the residents of this area.
We are requesting clear speed limit and stop sign postings at intersections and "T" streets.
We also are requesting signs to alert drivers that there are children in the area. Speed bumps should also be a consideration.
