    That much damage? Speed limit might be 35 mph for a very good reason. Speed limits are not just for the other guy!

    Those big old pine trees seem to be jumping out to cause vehicles to hit them all the time! Hard lesson learned…don’t speed and always drive defensively especially when near a tree! :-)

    You can also see pieces of the tail lights strewn amongst the bricks from the mail box he obviously hit along the way.

    Rich, you can see the pieces of the both tail lights still screwed to the vehicle.

    I live in this neighborhood, and we defiantly have a speeding problem. Nobody seems to pay attention to the speed limit signs on pilgrim trail. Thank goodness they didn’t hurt anyone walking.

    Speed limit in there is 35mph I’d say he was going quit a bit faster.

    What happened to the tail lights. They are both missing, did he hit that hard.
