Now that David Marks is our councilman maybe he can get involved. If speeding is so bad, I think speed cameras should be installed. There was excessive speeding in front on Parkville High on Putty Hill Ave for years. Speed cameras were installed and the majority of speeding has stopped. I don't like speed cameras. If speed cameras help to slow speeders and save a life, I am all for it. It is sad "big brother" has to watch our driving behavior because some people can't obey the speed and driving laws. I hope the Baltimore County Police set up radar and pull over drivers for speeding and aggressive driving.

Seven Courts Drive is a classic example of 1970s/1980s engineering that was designed to move traffic with little seeming interest in surrounding neighborhoods and community institutions. Honeygo Boulevard is another example; the road does an excellent job of moving traffic, but it is hardly friendly to pedestrians who want to access Joppa View Elementary School and other places. I established a Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee a year ago that has been looking at improvements throughout the Fifth District, including Seven Courts Drive. We will do what we can.

Mr. Marks. Glad to see you posted a comment and to read that you do have a Committee in place but the time has come for action. I've seen cars clocking 60 mph and practically on two wheels turning the bend near Hapsburg Court. If this situation is not corrected - mark my word here, there will be a much greater catastrophe to deal with. My greatest fear has been that a car will plow into a bus stop (Hapsburg's bus stop is actually where the bend begins and they pick up speed there) and kill a bunch of school aged children. Morning drivers are half asleep, talking on cell phones, applying make-up, multi-tasking, and in a big hurry to get to work and they don't care who they have to jump over to get there. I raised two boys on Hapsburg Court and most mornings I drove them to school because I did not want them waiting on the bus stop with speeding traffic flying by. Radar only helps temporarily but speed bumps and more importantly, cameras would do the trick. The comment before mine mentioned Parkville High School's cameras - fantastic idea! PLEASE DO NOT LET ANOTHER ACCIDENT OR A TOTAL CATASTROPHE HAPPEN ON YOUR WATCH! Thank you.

I live a little futther down Seven Courts and I always made the children stand WAY back from the bus stop. I remember every morning telling them all to move back because it scared me to death the way people drove past, sometimes inches from the curb to pass another vehicle. The fear of a car plowing into a bus stop loaded with children is not far-fetched. It's happened in other areas before. People drive like maniacs in the morning.

It is very sad that someone could do such a tragic thing and live with themselves afterwards! It is a speedway!
