Streets of Speed hits Ray Drive in Montgomery

    He couldn't believe his eyes, so he had to record it.   Albert Ryer lives in the Gunter Grove neighborhood off Wares Ferry Road on Ray Drive. in Montgomery.   He just knew he'd find most drivers ignoring a stop sign on his street.   He recorded traffic for one hour, checked out the video and then called the Streets of Speed hotline.    

   As we watched his home video together Ryer said, "they just cruise right through the stop signs, watch this guy, slick as a whistle, he slowed down, but didn't stop."   And he's right.  We took out our camera and Zapper 12 and found the same thing.   We clocked a lot of cars going well over 40 miles per hour in a 25 mph zone and at least 6 out of every 10 cars either ignored the stop sign or just slowly rolled through it.

    For Ryer this neighborhood is home, he moved here back in July of 1972.   "There was only my house and five others, it was a quiet neighborhood."   Even with the explosion of new homes and traffic, he still thinks the streets should be safe.   "There are a lot of children out here and I have a granddaughter who stays with us periodically, I'm afraid someone will get hurt eventually," Ryer said.

   We put in several calls to the Montgomery Police Department and they assured us they'll make sure drivers know S-T-O-P spells STOP and anyone who's speeding will pay for it, literally.  You never know what you'll find out on Ray Drive.   It could be Zapper 12, it could be a police radar, or it could be Mr. Ryer working on another experiment.  So play it safe and follow the law, a lot of eyes will be checking out Ray Drive.
