Don’t try walking your dog along Whitney Road in Mocksville. And if you’ve got kids outside playing, you had better watch them, too.

Will Bowser said the speeding vehicles have gotten out of control, reaching speeds of what he estimated to be 50-60 mph on the residential street off Milling Road.

He took his plea to the town board meeting earlier this month, and Mayor Will Marklin told him after the meeting the town will look for solutions.

“The speed in our neighborhood is out of control,” he said. “It’s not safe to be outside.”

He asked for signs, more of a police presense, something.

“It’s a public safety issue.”
