John Street Residents Ask Knox Officials to Add Speed Limit Sign

Speeding vehicles are drawing concerns from residents on the east end of John Street in Knox. Linda and Dave Metz told the city council Tuesday that there are no speed limit signs on eastbound John Street past Williams Street, and some drivers seem to think they may go as fast as they want. They said that with the number of children who live in the area, along with turkeys and deer in the woods along the street, there’s a high risk of an accident.

They suggested that another speed limit sign be added just east of Williams Street. Mayor Dennis Estok said he’d have the street superintendent take a look at the area today.
