SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

St. Louis City is testing out speeds humps in the Tower Grove area to slow down drivers.

Many residents say drivers go too fast down neighborhood streets, some also say they don’t completely stop at stop signs.

“We cross the street with him in the stroller all the time and people don’t always come to a full stop or look around as they are going. That’s something I see a lot,” said resident Keith Turner who walks the neighborhood with his wife and young son.

One man who works on construction projects in the neighborhood said many drivers drive at highway speed and do not pay attention.

In an effort to improve safety on the streets, the city has installed eight speed humps in the Tower Grove area as part of pilot program.

An alderman from the neighborhood says if the speed humps work, more will be installed.

Each speed hump costs around $2,500.
