Standing on Parkridge in Buffalo's University District, you see countless drivers blowing through stop signs.

It's a similar scene on Newburgh, where neighbors say cars sometimes go up to 50 miles an hour when the speed limit is 30.

Last year, the city installed nine temporary speed humps on some of the problem streets. Those were removed in winter, and this year placed on other streets.

The program was so successful, Councilmember Rasheed Wyatt has proposed a resolution for more funding for speed humps. He says there are 250 streets requesting them, and Renata Toney from Newburgh wants the hump for her street back.

"We shouldn't have to live in such a hazardous environment," she said.
