ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

St. Louis Alderman Jeffrey Boyd says it's time the city started looking for solutions to slow down speeding drivers.

"Speeding is an epidemic," Boyd said after a meeting of the Street and Traffic Committee.

Boyd is especially concerned about speeding along Natural Bridge and Goodfellow.

News 4 checked speeds on Natural Bridge using a radar gun, which showed some cars moving at more than 50 MPH in a 35 mph zone.

Some of the options being looked at include adding medians to large streets, and roundabouts and speed bumps on smaller roads.

"We're going to need a lot of money," Boyd said.
