PORT RICHEY - Residents here say their street is used as a cut through between neighborhoods, and many drivers blow past the 30 mile an hour speed limit.
"It's just a matter of time before somebody gets hurt or killed," said Port Richey resident Ed Kadar.
On a street named for a famous author, the story here is about speed.
Kadar is so frustrated with people going too fast down Mark Twain Lane, he takes video of them and even confronted one of the drivers.
"We are trying to make it a safer street. I was going to give you $10, to fill up your tank and take another street, but I'm not going to anymore," Kadar is heard telling the driver.
Residents here say their street is used as a cut through between neighborhoods, and many drivers blow past the 30 mile an hour speed limit.
"When you yell slow down, they look at you and flip you off and what are you crazy," said Kadar.
It's especially worrisome for parents like David Stewart. "I try and keep them inside or in the backyard."
A county study showed about 700 cars a day use Mark Twain Lane, and a majority are speeding. That's why residents think the county should pay for speed tables.
The county says they can have three speed tables on this street. But it will cost each home owner $400.
"A lot of us on this block don't have the money to do it," said Stewart.
I talked to county commissioner Henry Wilson who told me he's exploring options, that include trying to get federal dollars.
In the meantime, the cars fly by, and the frustration continues.
"Bottom line is, a child's life on this block boils down to $16,000, and god forbid if we don't get them put in and somebody gets hurt. It's not going to be a good day," said Kadar.
