My big beef! Castle Street and Kroger!Posted Saturday, May 30, 2009, at 2:23 PM
I live right behind Kroger and it gets intertaining to say the least. All the trash to pick up, all the yelling and noise, all the traffic.
When they first put Kroger in, they allowed access to a dead end street called Castle street.
Small single family homes are on that very narrow street and it was quiet and relatively crime free.
Well all that has changed. I have sat in my back yard and watched while people play "who can get to the road first", and have actually watched them hit each other.
The main problem i have with this is this is a residental road, very narrow and people drive very fast down this road and come blazing in the back of Kroger.
Peoples pets have been hit as well as cars.
Now on to another situation: getting out of Castle onto Fairfeild Pike. That is another whole adventure in itsself.
I have seen people get hit, dodge other cars and have had narrow misses myself.
My husband actually hit someone, he just could not see her for all the traffic. And he is Mr. Super Careful.
I am very concerned that a elderly person is going to get hit trying to pull out of that road one day. Some one is going to get killed, if they do not block access to this street as a exit.
I have been to the City and asked them to please put up a mirror so we can see the cars coming in the opposite direction or some solution.
I will go Monday and ask again. They were supposed to bring this up in a meeting.
I would like to see a solution before someone is critically injured or some fool spins out of control in my back yard.
Any how that is my beef....the graffiti on the back of Kroger is another subject...
