Traffic fatality on the 1900 block of Helena Rd. N is NOT a headline I want to see but am afraid it is very likely to come to pass.
Six of ten cars, trucks and motorcycles ignore the speed limit between Helmo and 22nd Street on Helena Rd N. because there is no posted speed limit. I would venture to say that Helena Rd. N. traffic abuse is is among the worst in the city.
Autos, trucks and motorcycles come around the curve at the West end of East Side Park on Helena in both directions at anywhere from 35 to 45 mph and accelerate from there.
Radar cops are posted on Helmo at the West end of East Side Park near the hockey rink, we need radar surveillance, increased patrols and a posted speed limit sign on Helena Rd. N. at the corner of Helena Rd. N and Helena CT. soon or that headline I don't want to see will come all too soon.
