A New Hanover county teen is fed up with speeders in his neighborhood. Corey Miller is 14-years-old and lives in the Brittany Woods subdivision. The speed limit is 35 miles per hour, but he sees people driving much faster than that and he wants the speed limit enforced. Corey Miller and his friends like to walk around their neighborhood and shoot the breeze. Miller said fast drivers make it hard for them to do that safely. ”I guess I care because it's a danger and having cars go that fast, something is going to happen eventually.” said Miller. The speed limit is 35 miles per hour, but he and his friends say not all drivers obey. “Well some of these cars come really close by you because there are no sidewalks,” miller said. Miller came to Newschannel 3 asking for help in getting the speed limit enforced. Sergeant Joseph Jewell with the Safe/Traffic Unit for the New Hanover County Sheriffs Department said concerned residents should call 911 to report speeders. “Let the teller operator know that it's not an emergency, but they are having a speeding problem in that area and what that will do is let us know, we can dispatch one of our deputies over their to look at the situation.” said Sgt. Jewell. If officers find that speeding is an issue they may also set up equipment in problem areas to track speeders.
