Speed control around Grant and Sherman Circles
I’ve lived in Petworth between Grant and Sherman Circles for about 1 1/2 years now. Love the neighborhood, but I am continually stressed by the speed of traffic going through our neighborhood streets and around the traffic circles. Despite many complaints to various government officials (and I know I’m not the only one), I was dismayed when the city announced new speed camera locations and none of them included the two circles and side streets. What gives? I sometimes get the sense that someone in DDOT has a personal interest in maintaining the freeway feel of these streets, dispite the presence of families, children, schools, and pets. Any thoughts from other residents about how to get the city to treat our streets as residential rather than freeways? Any ideas on how to get speed cameras sited there?
