30 MPH Or Less: City Of Salisbury Puts Speed Limit Signs On Nayl - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

30 MPH Or Less: City Of Salisbury Puts Speed Limit Signs On Naylor St.

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Not one, but six new speed limit signs greet drivers on Naylor Street.

Several near the Route 13 entrance and one not too far from the Station 2 Firehouse. On Wednesday, though implied, there weren't any 30 miles per hour speed limit signs when 47 ABC first reported on the community's concern about speeding problems in the neighborhood.

Last week, six-year-old Princess Seeney suffered injuries to her face after running in front of a car. She needed 22 stitches in total. Reverend Mark Thompson reached out to 47 ABC after our original story aired. He met Princess while out with Emmanuel Wesleyan's Adopt-A-Block outreach program, donating food to the residents in the area.

"Once we saw her and saw those stitches in her head, we realize that this is not a safe environment for our children to be running out in the street," said Thompson.

Thompson sent a letter to the Department of Public Works asking the city to look into putting out "Slow Down! Watch for Children" signs throughout the East Church Street area.

"We need street signs because this is a community, a residential community where children are playing and we want our children to be safe in this area," said Thompson. "We did a survey on Saturday and there's over 100 school age children on these streets every day."

After the signs went up Thursday, 47 ABC reached out to Mayor Jim Ireton to ask about Thompson's request for additional signage. Ireton sent a text message saying that, "[the City] is ordering them. Happy to do it."

Adopt-A-Block will be out here again next Saturday at which time we're told they'll talk to kids and parents in the area about safely using sidewalks.

Ireton also says that the city is "evaluating all the other through streets in the neighborhood to address any other areas where it may not be clear what the limit is."

He added that if it isn't distinctly posted, the speed limit on city streets are 30 mph.
