About 30 residents gathered along Second Avenue in Hazelwood this morning to protest what they said are dangerous conditions caused by speeding vehicles.

Standing at the corner of Glenwood Avenue, they held signs reading "Watch for children" and "2nd Avenue not a highway." They want the city to reduce the 25 mph speed limit to 15 mph and create a school zone, even though no open schools are in the vicinity. They have also asked the city school district to post a crossing guard there.

Children must cross the street to board school buses and their safety is jeopardized by drivers coming off the Glenwood Bridge at high speeds, residents said.

"All of our children are being shipped out of here to other communities but we still need safety," said Saundra Cole.
