Prospect Installs Speed bump to Curb accidents


The Prospect town recently installed a speed bump on Straitsville Road to slow traffic near where a local man was killed in a car wreck in 2014.  Speeding has been a big issue for a long time. "Carmen Santoro" who was pulling out of Porter Hill Road when he was T-boned by an oncoming vehicle. Two years before the accident, David Santoro, Carmen's son, pushed for the town to add a stop sign at the intersection to slow traffic on Straitsville Road. Over the years, the town has painted "SLOW" on Statesville Road, put in radar speed signs and added mirrors to improve sightlines. The addition of the speed had made the road even safer.
