The town has repeatedly said they've tried tow have NCDOT lower the speed, but NCDOT has refused. From their point of view it's still "rural".
The following videos were provided to aShortChronicle showing multiple incidents at just one crossing.
Does it look "rural" to you?
Will anyone let this girl cross the road?
Does anyone not know you stop for school buses?
Clocked at 50mph with no intention of slowing down?
The town MUST do something about this before a truly dangerous situation becomes a truly tragic one.
Update: From the videographer...Just so people know the last video is cut short because the phone was dropped as the moms ran into the street to try and stop the accelerating driver---sounds crazy right? But the squeaking you hear at the beginning were the bus brakes---children were starting to unload and this idiot was ACCELERATING 50+ MPH with kids entering the cross walk! Trying to beat the pedestrians!
