Safety Of Drivers, Pedestrians In Question At Georgetown Shopping Center
Nestled in the corner of a busy intersection and an I-35 service road, you'll find Wolf Ranch Shopping Center. It's the fast moving traffic that worries Sherry Judice, a regular at Wolf Ranch. "People are stepping out of the stores in front of cars that are doing 50 miles an hour in the parking lot," she says.
Judice voiced her concerns to property management in December.
"The management office told me they had considered speed bumps but it hasn't been done yet," says Judice.
A month later and still no change, Judice called KEYE TV. We checked into it for her, first observing the problem area. In the hour we were at Wolf Ranch, we didn't see any reckless driving or near accidents.
We observed drivers cautiously entering from the service road. However, we still asked management if speeding is a problem and if so, how are they working to reduce that risk. They directed us to corporate.
We received this response:
"Our primary concern is always for the safety and well-being of our shoppers and employees. We are committed to providing them with a safe shopping environment and are actively looking into the matter," says Tina Venetis, Manager.
But that statement isn’t enough for Judice, who wants action.
"Speed bumps, signs, they have to break the speed from the service road," says Judice.
We will continue to pursue this report and get the answers Judice is looking for. If you have an idea for a story or need help investigating a problem, email us at email@example.com.
