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.
