There are many different widths and heights to each of them. From what I read in the article, the speed bump in question was the third one and may not be necessary. Old […]

Says residents are irresponsible

I was shocked and disappointed to read last week’s cover story in The Acorn about the bicyclist who suffered serious injuries when he struck an “invisible” speed bump on a private portion of Chesebro Road. I suffered nearly the exact same fate for the exact same reason last year. It took months and thousands of dollars to recover from my […]
