More police patrols needed to catch speeders, red light runners in southwest Ocala

To the Editor:

I agree with the recent letter acknowledging drag racing and speeding on SW 60th Avenue/95th Street and 49th Avenue. My house backs up to 95th…and every night, especially on weekends, it sounds like a drag strip. With all of the family neighborhoods that have been having popping up like dollar weeds, something needs done. A regular police presence and ticketing.

If you are coming out of Meadow Glenn towards the street light, most cars coming down 95th don’t even stop on red…they just keep coming, totally ignoring the need to stop before making a right turn. The lack of policing is making a trip to the grocery store a deadly experience.
