MARIETTA, Ga. --The city council in an Atlanta suburb is expected to consider a plan to make it easier for neighborhoods to install "speed humps" to slow traffic.
Councilman Johnny Sinclair tells The Marietta Daily Journal that he gets more phone calls on the topic than any other issue in the city.
Marietta's policy on speed humps requires 65 percent of property owners in a neighborhood to vote in favor of speed humps before the council will consider authorizing them. The council is expected to consider ways of easing that requirement when it meets Wednesday night.
Patrick Thompson, who lives in Rambo Estates off Whitlock Avenue, said speed humps would slow drivers who cut through his neighborhood. He said cars "treat our road like a drag strip."
