There are a lot of problems with unsafe roads because of drivers (of all ages) who do not drive careful and feel they have the right away no matter what. I sit in shock while people don't get out of the way of ambulances & fire engines, I thought you were always to go as far right as possible to get out of their way. Many times I have seen people go through the light, honking people that are stopped just missing an emergency vehicle. Some of the problems with the two lane roads is not all the drivers. Even through people have driveways they park 2-4 cars in the road making it difficult to get by. I grew up on Timonium Road were there was room to park your cars on the road but the cars had to be in the driveway in order they were leaving and if you didn't like it you parked your car in the dead end and walked back to your house (a choice I made many of times). People do need to slow down and be more careful and please don't talk on the cell phone while driving and holding the phone up to your ear. Most of the people still driving with their phone to their ear are causing accidents & near misses. Everyone be safe. On a side note I am thrilled they are building a dog park and it's about time.

Kilbride Court could use a few speed humps. The court has no thru access and some still drive as fast as they would on Joppa Rd.
