Ask The Mayor
-I was walking my dog on North Rockwall at
4 p.m. on Wednesday, February 15. I was shocked at the cars traveling
on this street, as many cars were exceeding the speed limit. It
was like having a ringside seat at NASCAR.
I witnessed a car that turned left from Pecan
and pulled in front of a truck and nearly caused a wreck. This
caused the driver of the car to go into road rage mode and speeded
excessively to overtake the truck so he could get revenge against
the truck driver.
I realized that as a pedestrian, anyone could
be killed or injured by any speeding car that could lose control
and run onto the sidewalk. There's not very much space dividing
the sidewalk from the street.
I'm bringing this to your attention as this
concerns all of the people of Terrell. Thank you for reading my
Answer - Thanks for your inquiry. Citizen safety is
a priority for our police department and city management and staff.
The police department frequently gets traffic complaints from various
areas of the city and requests to monitor and take appropriate
enforcement action. The police department will dedicate available
personnel to this general area during high traffic times.
D.J. Ory, Mayor
