Masshole in a BMW terrorizes Watertown street

Glen Mohr reports:

... Almost everyday between 4:30 and 6:00 PM a black BMW speeds down Commonwealth Road. It hits the long downhill and just floors it, accelerating all the way down to Belmont Street, so fast that it is impossible to read its license plate even if you are standing there as it zooms by. ... This is a street with many children, dogs being walked, people jogging and walking to or from the bus. A serious incident could happen any day. Last week it almost did. ...

I had a similar issue when i

I had a similar issue when i lived in Maine, and trust my opinion, Maine has alot more MAINE-aholes speeding in residential areas than Massachusetts. The roadway fatality of Maine is TWICE the rate of Mass. and pedestrians including children get struck and killed about one month in Maine. Life is cheap up in Maine.

Anyways,on a street i lived on, some white trash truck was going 40-60mph(25mph)on a regular basis, nightly at about 7:45. I told the local,state, and Maine Public safety...no big deal to them. 'Get the plate number!',...right. Your lucky, the police at least tried to catch the speeder. I stood out some nights, waiting,of course no speeder. A week goes by, the white trash truck returns. I solved it by moving out.

A thought on a solution, is it possible to set up some sort of video camera somewhere along the route? something that can zero in on the plate number.

My suggestion...get a lawn

My suggestion...get a lawn chair and park it on the corner of Commonwealth Road and Belmont. That's a fairly busy street, and he's going to have to at least slow down before he takes a right. Then get his license plate number and turn him in.

Call his parents too. I bet he's a teenager gone wild.

A well-placed snowball...

...to the door (I don't suggest throwing it where it would obscure his site if he's out of control already) will get him to slow down/stop. Of course, he may try punch you in the head, but then you could really keep him off the road.

Some people in Watertown may in fact be pussy's (sic), but that's definitely a step above being a person from Newton who can't spell or punctuate properly.
