Rude drivers disrupt neighborhood

Due to the recent railroad work on Diamond Lake Road and Rt. 83, our sleepy little neighborhood has been overrun with traffic. People can't seem to understand that local means local. They just ignore signs and other traffic signs. We have become a convenient cut-through between Rt. 89 and Diamond Lake Road by passing both the railroad tracks and a stop light.

Will the parade of cars stop when the railroad repairs are finished? I doubt it, as too many cars have found our streets.

We have narrow roads, thus the added traffic puts children, walkers or even checking the mailbox at danger. Neither the railroad, county nor township has done a lot to protect us from the influx of traffic, and it will continue for another two weeks.

I hate to think of the future when there is more train traffic and more and more people can't or won't obey the local traffic signs.
