TRAFFIC: Neighborhood appreciates action

Since the turn lane and construction has been an issue on 176th Street, there has been an increase in unsafe driving on Waller Road, especially between 176th and Military Road. People are speeding at times 20 mph and more over the posted speed limit.

We contacted the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department traffic division, and within a few days it set up a trailer to slow down traffic. That worked to a point. However, we noticed patrols at both end of our street pulling speeders over in droves.

We have families and children and animals on our road. We want our neighborhood to be respected. Just last week we wrote down the license numbers of 10 cars littering and reported them to the authorities.

We want to thank the traffic division and its fast response to our serious issue. We appreciate what it did in our neighborhood.
