Just a bit ago, my daughters and two friends of theirs were walking to another neighbor's house. I watched in horror, as two vehicles that came seemingly out of nowhere, raced each other down the street where my kids were, on West "E" Street. Both vehicles were being driven by inexperienced Freshmen boys of Leoti. It was quite easy to see that at least one driver was not accustomed to driving at highway speeds on gravel roads. (Both vehicles were going around 45-50 mph!) They were barely more than a flash!)The driver of the car was swerving from side to side and barely missed hitting one of my daughters and her friend!!! A parked vehicle next to the road was also just barely missed!
I blew a Mommy gasket!!! I grabbed my cellphone and called the police as I was running out the door to gather my kids and their friends. I want to appeal to parents of kids who are able to drive vehicles now to tell your kids to follow the traffic laws or DON'T DRIVE!!!
In this case, the sheriff was trying to find the boys. I hope he did and I hope he got the message across to them!!!
I would like to say that this is an isolated case for around this neighborhood, but that is totally wrong. We deal with this time of nonsense far too often--sometimes 2 or 3 times a day!!!
If you notice anyone speeding around your house or business, PLEASE contact the police department!!! I am very concerned that if nothing is done, someone will be hurt very seriously--or WORSE...
