CORPUS CHRISTI - Almost every resident who lives on Robert Drive has some kind of horror story about a car speeding down their street and crashing.
"In the night we had a car upside down between these two trees in our front yard," said resident Wes Zavodsky.
"I think cars do go too fast and since it's not necessarily regulated it's a danger to people who live here," said resident Alison Horton.
So seeing the city lay down the white rumble strips is something residents are happy to see.
"You know if the city is listening, that's always a good thing to pay attention to the needs of those of us who live here," said Horton.
Residents say that these rumble strips may not solve their problem completely, but they hope it'll help. While neighbors are glad the city is making efforts to make their street more safe, they all agree in the end it's the drivers that have to make the decision to slow down.
"I don't know whether they don't know how to read or they just don't care. But like I say, obey the law. That will relieve a whole lot of the problems," said Zavodsky.
People who live on Robert Drive hope the rumble strips will slow down drivers and make their street a more safe place to live.
In addition to the rumble strips the city will be conducting a traffic study to see if a three way stop sign at the intersection of Robert and Gaines is needed.
