People in one Hampden Township neighborhood are worried after an accident on their street this week.
Thursday, a crash occurred on the 6100 block of Haymarket Way. Police said a driver stuck a cyclist while attempting to turn into a driveway. The male cyclist was sent to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The crash worried and frustrated Haymarket Way's Mark Linenbroker, who says he has been fighting to make his street safer for years.
"Bottom line is we have to wait until someone gets hit, and here it has happened," he said.
Linenbroker said he's been working to put a two-way stop sign at Ludway and Haymarket streets.
He even wanted to lower the speed limit, but nothing has been done so we talked to the township.
Hampden Township officials said they looked into adding a stop sign -- there was even a study done. However, that study showed that a stop sign just wasn't needed. Moreover, 25 miles per hour is the norm for neighborhoods and lowering the limit would not be a feasible option, according to township officials.
One could argue that lowering the speed limit or adding a stop sign would have had little to no impact on this recent crash. The so-called intersection in question is down the street from where the accident occurred, and police say speed was not a factor.
Still, people on Haymarket Way want to find a way to improve safety on their street.
"I do not feel safe letting my children anywhere near the street," neighbor Stefanie Bevenour said.
