Boulevard perpetuates consternation

Bullard continues to be a source of frustration for Surprise residents.


The speed limit used to be 45 when it was a fully functional and normal road in Surprise! I think it’s atrocious that the speed limit was decreased … I crossed Greenway Road at 43rd Avenue every day when I went to high school, and the speed limit was over 40 MPH! It was crucial for me to understand the requirements to be a pedestrian! — Tim Meter

That’s why the lanes were narrowed, too; to slow down drivers that can’t obey speed limits. — Linda Casazza-Perone

People need to pay attention when they are driving. — Neysa Funk Mcfarland

Point …

They’re meant to keep cars from running over children as they walk home from school … I believe the amount of kids that walk home overwhelms the size of the sidewalk and, as we all know, kids will be kids it’s just an added barrier of protection. I believe that a damaged undercarriage of a car is far less tragic than an injured child! — Manuel Gonzales


They really shouldn’t be traveling on the same surfaces unless it is at the light … So, you are justifying children walking in harm’s way because of the size of the crowd? No, kids need to learn to not die. That’s part of growing up, amirite? — Lorna Elaine
