City of Cleveland installs radar feedback sign to slow down drivers on West Blvd, I-90 exit
Residents fear for their lives as out-of-control drivers continue to crash into their houses
CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The City of Cleveland has installed a radar feedback sign on West Boulevard and I-90 to try and slow down drivers on that stretch of road.
Radar feedback signs display the travel speeds of passing vehicles with the goal of increasing drivers’ attention, awareness and reduce speeding.
Residents on West Boulevard tell 19 News that speeding drivers have been a problem for them for years.
Sherry Heart has lived her entire life in her home and said along with her home being hit by cars and trucks six times, the guardrail that sits as a barrier in front of her home has been destroyed 43 times because of accidents.
“Mentally this is too much, and how do I sell my house? Morally, how do I sell my house? I would never wish this on somebody,” said Heart.
After a series of 19 Troubleshooter reports, City & State officials agreed to work together on solutions and have been meeting with residents for months to solve the problem.
Plans are in the works but officials remain tight-lipped on a timeline of when the problem will be permanently resolved.
