NCCPD: Speeding an issue on Old Kennett Road
By Tom Lehman

County police have a message for drivers on Old Kennett Road: Slow down!

Police say residents living on Old Kennett Road, Snuff Mill Road and Ashland Clinton School Road, have complained about speeders causing traffic hazards as they try to access their driveways or Snuff Mill Road.

Residents have also expressed concerns over the welfare of their children and their own safety when exiting their own driveways.

After police stepped up enforcement on the roadway in recent months, officers have issued 119 citations have been issued along with 97 traffic citations.

Although there hasn't been an accident since then, police say speeding is believed to have been a factor in a fatal crash that killed a Wilmington woman last month.
