"Choose Civility" has been a theme of Columbia and Howard County for a few years now, and until recently it seemed a very apropos statement for the area. Howard County was an oasis in a desert.

I take a deep breath and relax when I get back home to Howard County, this oasis of civility. When I heard about the speed camera program, I was so disappointed.

Neighborhoods change. To the residents of Trotter Road, that simple truth probably sounds about as empty as the promises they were given a little over two years ago by Howard County officials.At the time, residents were concerned about the advent of River Hill, Columbia's final village, and the increased traffic it would cause on Trotter Run as people tried to gain access to a rerouted Route 32. The solution, accepted by the County Council at the time, was to close off Trotter Road on both sides of Route 32, creating two dead-end streets.

The County Council voted unanimously last night to amend the 1990 General Plan and let residents in Columbia's newest village use Trotter Road as an escape route.Until last night, the General Plan had called for Trotter Road to become a dead end on both sides of a rerouted Route 32 that is yet to be built.Residents in the Pheasant Ridge neighborhood of River Hill -- Columbia's newest village -- had told the council that unless the southern portion of Trotter Road was kept open, their children would be transferred to new schools and they would be endangered in an emergency.

ALFRED ARSENAULT hates the street in front of his home. Old Frederick Road, between Rogers Avenue and the bridge across the Patapsco River at the Baltimore County line, "is a narrow, twisting, hilly road with a well-deserved speed limit of 25 mph," he said. However, drivers wishing to avoid the Baltimore Beltway often use it as a shortcut from Baltimore County to U.S. 29. Arsenault noted that traffic is heavy during rush hours, with drivers exceeding the speed limit. "To this recipe for disaster, mix in school buses picking up the kids who live along the road.
