Boy racers regularly use Whitney Street between Tiverton Road and Donovan street to race their loud and noisy vehicles. The fact that this stretch of the road does not have any speed breakers acts as an attraction and gives them ample opportunity to do so. Living on Whitney Street has now started to feel like living in the middle of a raceway. Apart from the fact it's so frustrating to having to cope with the deafening noise pollution, it's become extremely dangerous for the users of this street, whether pedestrians or other law-abiding vehicle users. If nothing is done soon to address this issue, the street will remain a potential ground for a casualty to happen. We would request you to take prompt action soon by building speed breakers across the stretch of Whitney Street to make it less appealing for racers and safer for the residents and road users. Thanks!
