Lisa Andrews: Don’t mistake Retrac for a race track

Drivers on Retrac Way — please slow down!

This area is a peaceful place to live with beautiful scenery, and residents enjoy walking their dogs, pushing strollers with little children, and walking along Retrac Way. However, it is downright dangerous at times to walk due to drivers who mistake the name “Retrac” for “racetrack”.

Someone walking is going to be hit and killed, so please drivers, slow down! Especially around the curve and the hill by Christian Encounter Ministries, do drivers really speed, as evidenced by the sound of squealing tires trying to make the curve.

Please be considerate of your fellow Retrac Way residents and slow down. You just might enjoy the scenery, too!
