Fatal crash sparks concern on Siesta Key

Residents rally to make Siesta Drive safer

SIESTA KEY, Fla. - Earlier this month there was a drunk driving crash on Siesta Dr. near Higel Ave. on Siesta Key. Residents said the roadway is becoming dangerous.

A group of residents formed the group "Make Siesta Drive Safer."  Dee Reams helped start the group with about a dozen home owners who live nearby.

"Part of the problem is the 40 mph speed limit that needs to be lowered," said Reams.

The group plans to have FDOT perform a traffic study in hopes that changes will be made to make the roadway safer.

The "Make Siesta Drive Safer" group will have its next meeting in two weeks.
