Even in dappled autumn sunlight, Fear Avenue in Northwest Baltimore looks a bit desolate. People are scarce, homes and businesses can be counted on one hand, and the traffic that flows heavily on nearby Reisterstown Road seems but a trickle on this obscure side street. Come nightfall, inky shadows descend on Fear Avenue, casting an eerie pall over its gritty industrial buildings, chain-link fences and a road that comes to a dead end in a tangle of brush and tall trees. But the origins of Fear Avenue aren't so frightful.

I was astounded to read the letters of complaint regarding the implementation of speed bumps or humps in Howard County, particularly those opposing ones slated for Thunder Hill Road. Clearly, the person complaining does not live on Thunder Hill Road but must drive on it or why complain. I live on Thunder Hill Road so I have to ask: Are you the one who disregards the speed limit by speeding up and down the street while on the phone or texting? In the past, when we called the police, requesting that they monitor the street, they clocked drivers going from 40-65 miles per hour in a 25 MPH zone.
