Has anyone else noticed the cars flooring it down Philomena between Berkman and Mattie? It looks like they're just turning onto Philomena, peeling out at like 50 mph, turning around at Mattie and then peeling away. It's pretty loud and startling, and of course not very safe. It generally happens in the early evening, at least once a week. It worries me because I know lots of people walk down Philomena on the way to HEB, and other than the drag racers it is a super calm street. I wouldn't want anyone to let their little ones wander into the road on a bike and get hurt.

I have been considering that, but by the time I could even dial the people are gone. I still haven't even been able to get a license plate #. It's so frustrating.

If this is a regular occurrence (and particularly if the same vehicles are involved), I'd suggest calling 311 and asking that a hidden patrol car be there for surveillance once in awhile during the timeframe you've observed the problem. It wouldn't hurt to get a description of the cars, even if you can't get license plate info.

I've seen drag races regularly on Berkman on Saturday mornings several times. I mentioned this to one of the police officers - he shrugged his shoulders, didn't seem to believe me.

Calling 911 wouldn't help much - they line up, race once and then they're gone.

I have heard and seen an actual race car tearing down EM Franklin, which is across Manor Rd from Berkman. The race car did circuits on EM Franklin early in the morning around 2 or 3 am. One holiday morning, I came face to face with the race car on EM Franklin. A number of neighbors also saw it and phoned it into the police. For a long time everything was quiet until early this morning when I heard the same racing sounds.

It's definitely a regular occurrence, and the crazy thing is that I can never even get out there in time to figure out the make/model of the cars. Some of them even look like they might have parts from different kinds of cars all put together.

Other than some kind of security camera, I don't know if the police will be able to catch these people. Surely they don't have enough extra manpower to just put someone in a car at a construction site waiting for speeders. I guess it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Car racing is another profession in which men are interested mostly it is also dangerous for their life as well. Later on buy thesis online provide the racing kits to the poorer players.
