Drivers zooming down Cleveland Avenue on Milwaukee's south side

CREATED Oct. 15, 2012 - UPDATED: Oct. 15, 2012

MILWAUKEE- An extreme speeding problem got our attention this week.

The wind did a number on Dixie Williamson's trees this weekend, but that's nothing compared to the numbers speeders post on her street.

The street: Cleveland Avenue, between 43rd and 48th; the limit: 25 miles per hour.

But Dixie says cars are constantly driving faster than that.

"Oh, I say at least 40, if not more..." says Dixie Williamson.

Dixie's neighbor asked Speedbusters for help -- after a speed-related crash.  She wrote, "I've always just sort of dealt with the difficulty crossing the street, turning into my driveway, and just generally living on a dangerous street, but the totaling of my car is the last straw."

Dixie and her neighbor hope a visit from Speedbusters convinces drivers in that area to obey the 25 mile per hour limit.
