A new road brings new issues to one Hannibal neighborhood.
The Stardust Drive extension has opened the neighborhood to more traffic, but also an increase in speeders.
Several residents that live off Stardust between Rosewood and Head Lane tell WGEM News that the amount of speeding cars that go through their neighborhood has gotten out of hand.
Because of the complaints, Hannibal officials are considering putting in speed tables, similar to the ones installed by Holy Family Schools. Officials say the speed table would help keep drivers under the 25 mph posted speed limit and local residents agree.
"The speed bumps would help, definitely. There's a lot of speeding in the neighborhood and it's just a safety issue, it would be a good idea to go ahead and put them in," Linda Daniels said.
Hannibal City Manager Jeff LaGarce says the city is also considering putting in 4 way stops at Stardust and Clover, and at Stardust and Head Lane.
The issue will be voted on in the coming months. If passed, the speed tables could be implemented as early as this spring.
