Residents scared for children on neighborhood road

MARION COUNTY, W.Va (WDTV) Certain residents who live on Deerfield Drive say that people are driving too fast and causing some concern.

Deerfield Drive connects many houses where families live. There is also a bus stop at the end of the road where children stand and wait.

Chris Alasky and his wife have lived in the neighborhood for 31 years. Their kids grew up on Deerfield Drive and now their grandson gets to do the same.

"I have a grandson in 3rd grade at White Hall, he is 8 years old and he catches the bus. His mother picks him up most of the time at the top of the hill", Alasky said.

However, drivers cant see over the top of the hill and never know whats coming from the other direction.

One resident mentioned that they tried to contact authorities to possibly get some speed bumps or signs put up, but haven't had much luck.

For residents like Alasky, he just wants people to be cautious of the risks that could follow reckless driving.

"I just think people need to realize that they don't want to hurt a kid or a dog or anybody right, or a person or wreak their car. so slow down when you enter a development where there's children", Alasky said.
