School Zones. Which Comes First: Safety or Convenience?

I couldn't help but notice that the City of Sheffield has erected a 'Speed Bump' sign in front of Sheffield High School. I heartily applaud this decision and eagerly await the installation of the 'speed bump'. What I'm trying to figure out, though, is why such consideration has not apparently been given to L. E. Willson School?

Parents dropping off and picking up their children at L. E. Willson school are constantly faced with the very real threat of drivers speeding into and out of the school zone (31st St), apparently completely oblivious to the threat that their 2,000 pound plus vehicle poses to anyone in their path. For some unknown reason, there appears to be reluctance on the part of city council and school board members to properly address the very real threat these speeding cars pose to students, staff and faculty alike at L. E. Willson School.

Perhaps someone with either entity would be so kind as to enlighten us?


A whole lot 'more' goes on in Lauderdale County's Community Corrections than the general public would be pleased to hear about. A thorough state investigation into the program's practices and abuses is PAST due.
