    Yes @Well

    Paying Attention is good advice.

    This is not the place to check your cell phone or throw out your beer can and garbage.

    No body comes and picks up trash there any more, the old people in the neighborhood there have to do it it seems.

    Why doesn’t the Town of Century put in speed humps like they do for other neighbor hoods.?

    Hope the young person is ok but pretty sick and tired of speeders, utility pole breakers, sign plower overs, cell phone texters, drunks and litter bugs.

    All the rest of you!

    15 MPH . Maybe the two power poles side by side aren’t that bad for now after all. It sounded like an explosion. Please go slow. The poles are not on the westbound lane. Pedestrians could have been on the sidewalk. 15 MPH at the curve.
