A road sign telling motorists to slow down in school zone has been hit, by a suspected speeding driver.
The sign meant to alert motorist of children in the vicinity has been completely knocked down and damaged beyond repair much to the outrage of residents and parents of Savannah Primary School who explains that speed limits have been in place to deter speeding drivers to be aware of children crossing.
One parent from the Savannah area said she heard about the sign being knocked down after a security guard at the school informed her of the hit and run. One local worker from the Savannah district Mr. Allen Chisholm said that speeding in the school area of Savannah has been rampant.
“I’m here everyday and I watch the traffic everyday and I see some close calls, very close calls, I don’t know why it hasn’t happened yet because you can’t take it for granted,” Mr. Chisholm said as he explained the speeding of cars through the school zone.
Supervisor at the NRA Mr. Larry Lewis said that a new sign has been ordered and will be erected in the next two weeks.
