Police chief will attend civic association meeting
Concerns about excessive speeding, rising crime and increased drug activity will be discussed when county Police Chief James N. Robey attends tomorrow's meeting of the North Laurel Civic Association.
George Frangos of the Department of Traffic Engineering and a representative from the county executive's office also will attend the meeting, at 7:30 p.m. in the media center at Laurel Woods Elementary School.
"Cars flying down Whiskey Bottom, All Saints and North Laurel roads and Madison and Baltimore avenues are a danger to children and adults," said Patsy Yingling, association president. "We are looking for ways to slow them down."
Mr. Frangos is scheduled to discuss speed bumps, which some North Laurel residents say have done nothing to eliminate speeding through residential neighborhoods.
North Laurel residents also are concerned about an increase in car thefts, burglaries and drug-trafficking.
