Dramatic Video Highlights Speeding Concerns

Dramatic home surveillance video has been making the rounds this weekend, and neighbors in East Nashville said it raises red flags about the serious issue of speeding in Nashville neighborhoods.

The video, shot from a home on Dozier Place in East Nashville, showed a dog getting hit by a car.

Neighbors acknowledged the dog should have been on a leash, but they said cars routinely speed down the road, using it as a cut-through to avoid a nearby traffic light at Gallatin Avenue and Trinity Lane.

The dog sustained only minor bruises, but neighbors worry that next time, without anything being done about the cars speeding down the road, a child could be hit.

“We don't want a child playing in the middle of our yard, and running into the street because a ball goes in the middle of the street, and then they get hit,” said Lexie Flynn, a neighbor who lives along Dozier Place.
