The Editor:

Seventh Street has turned into a raceway.

The neighbourhood has turned into a party zone.

With cars and motorcycles racing up and down the street in the evening, it's only a matter of time that someone gets hit or worse.

Also, the open alcohol consumption and public urination in the bushes around our neighbourhood is a disgrace and illegal, yet nothing is being done.

Am I the only one that this bothers?

Something needs to be done either with beefed up patrol of police and /or speed bumps installed to keep Seventh and Belmont safe.
