Springfield Neighbors Says “Slow Down” Want More Action From City

SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – If you drive down Cheatham St. in Springfield you might think someones running for office but if you take a closer
you will realize that the signs are delivering the same message, “Slow down”.

The signs were put up by neighbors that are fed up by people driving to fast while there are children out playing and they are concerned that someone is going to get hurt.

Smokey Barn News talked with Dana Risk who lives on the street, he says people need to slow down, stop texting and pay attention when they drive because they will find it hard to live with themselves if they injured a child.

      Thank you for the kind words. I’m available most days between 8:00a and 11:00p.
      Most folks don’t know this but I once ran a marathon because it was on my way or that I played college football in high school.

    Its not just Cheatham st. Woodside dr. Connected to 17th ave. It’s just as bad and there’s been pedestrians hit multiple car accidents and nothing is done about it.
