Savannah city council discuss speeding issues in neighborhoods

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Savannah city council is discussing a policy to deal with speeding issues in neighborhoods around the area.

The idea is to use safety devices, such as speed bumps and flashing lights to slow traffic down in neighborhoods plagued with speeding issues.

Council is trying to figure out where these devices will go and which neighborhoods will get them first.

"I want streets safe and I think the council does as a whole wants to have safe streets," explained alderman Tony Thompson. "The policy needs to basically establish a method in which we identify which streets truly need it regardless of what neighborhoods they're in."

Alderman Thompson also says it doesn't hurt to calmly ask speeders to slow down.
