Greenwood driver almost hits boy walking to bus stop, despite speed traps

A driver almost hit a boy who was crossing the street to go to his bus stop in Greenwood on Friday. Two mothers say it’s time for a change.

The mothers said cars fly through their neighborhood, Honey Creek Meadows, despite police speed traps and the neighborhood association’s attempts to get help from the Greenwood Common Council.

Neighbors say the police have repeatedly set up temporary speed traps. Legislators toughened penalties for driving past a bus stop arm this year after three kids were killed walking to their bus last year.
