City officials looking to stop speeding on Stardust Drive

Posted:
HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -

Speeding has become a serious issue on a heavily traveled road in Hannibal and now city officials are looking at ways to get drivers to slow down. 

Officials are debating whether or not to install speed tables, or a flat-top style speed bump close to the bottom of the hills of Stardust Drive.  City Manager Jeff LaGarce said there have been reports of people going as fast as 50 miles per hour in the 25 mile per hour zone.  

"With all those hills, it's convenient speeding place and there's a lot of straightaways, you can see all the way to China from some of those places, and there's not a lot of twist and turns, it's a straightaway it's downhill and sometimes these areas lend themselves to speeding," LaGarce said. 

The city council will vote on the speed table issue next week.
