Neighborhood speeding is a serious and pervasive problem. Our neighborhood streets -- where people walk and kids play -- are becoming speedways. Too many drivers still think it's okay to drive 5, 10 or 15 mph over the neighborhood limit, unaware that they won't be able to stop in time to avoid a tragedy. Slow down in neighborhoods, and keep it under 25.
