Drivers on south side still not slowing down

MILWAUKEE- What is it about 43rd Street that makes it such a magnet for reckless drivers?
It's a wide street surrounded by homes and parks, and crossed frequently by kids.
But the speeding problem here must be constant since your complaints have been rolling in regularly -- since 2008.
Jay Olstad was the first Speedbuster you asked for help, clocking speeders near 43rd and Howard in Greenfield.
Steve Chamraz was out on 43rd Street near Lincoln in January.
The limit is 25 -- up and down 43rd Street, but drivers ignore it almost constantly.
The most recent complaint to reach the Speedbusters in-box makes it sound like driving the limit can be dangerous.
Kimberly wrote: "I have already been yelled at by someone tailgating me to move over because I was going the speed limit."
With cars doing 10 to 20 over the posted limit -- it's easy to understand why law-abiding drivers feel intimidated in traffic.
It's why Speedbusters will keep coming back until fast drivers get the message.
