Speed bumps the answer to Lake Gardner speeders

To the editor:

I have been following with interest the letters from Ms. Pouliot regarding the speeding drivers on Thompson Street. I have a similar issue in my neighborhood.

We live on Essex Street and our backyard runs along the driveway leading to the Lake Gardner Beach and parking lot. When the weather gets warmer, many people feel the need to race down the driveway and into parking lot.

We customarily walk our dogs on the beach area and fear that they might be injured or killed by these speeders. I feel that speed bumps could be a reasonable solution to his problem. They worked on Amidon Avenue.

Last week a speeding vehicle nearly hit me and my dogs. I was so startled, I nearly spilled the bag of roofing nails I was carrying.
