We noticed the sign above over the weekend near the intersection of Somerset Drive and Lee Boulevard in north Leawood, and it got us to thinking about the safety of local neighborhoods for kids playing. A couple of areas north of the Village Shops have had a number of homeowners place yard signs that read “Drive Like Your Kids Live Here.”
Do you think there’s an issue with drivers not being safe in neighborhoods where kids are playing? If so, what’s the biggest concern: speeding, inattentive driving or something else? How do you feel about traffic calming measures like the speed bumps on 71st Street in Prairie Village? Do you think they improve safety for kids playing?
