Students cause chaos

To the Editor:

I have lived in the Deerwood subdivision for three years, and I have learned to cherish the peace and quiet of this neighborhood while school is out for the summer.

The reason I say this is because of the chaos that ensues when the high school students at Prairie Ridge are released for the day. What happens in the cul de sac in front of my house is ridiculousness – the tire squealing and all around lack of common courtesy is overwhelming.

Car after car comes into our neighborhood and violently squeals at speeds too fast, just to hurry up and get back to Crystal Lake Road so they can make a right turn and go past the school they should have turned left out of in the first place.

Now Nunda Township is going to open a road barrier between Deepwood Road and Red Barn Road. This sounds fine, but when you take in to account the way these high school students drive in our neighborhood, now you can’t help but imagine the worst is yet to come.

I have witnessed construction crews from the township that were repaving our roads being tormented when the high school students started to come in the neighborhood after school was released for the day.

The lack of any police presence to help deter these student-drivers from making my neighborhood a death trap is unacceptable.

Nunda Township and Mike Lesperance need to hear and see what is happening in this neighborhood.
