LACKAWAXEN TWP. -  At the Lackawaxen Township January workshop, township resident John Iona shared his thoughts on the speed bumps, not humps in the Woodloch Springs community. Iona told the board of supervisors of a “very dangerous situation” that occurred near his home. There was a time when Iona sought help from the former road master, who he did not name, but said was very helpful with his concerns about the speeding on the road. 
          
Without the bumps installed, Iona said the difference in drivers’ speeds were “absolutely insane.” There was a point where Iona used a device to rate the speed of cars, and they were clocked at going 60 to 80 miles an hour. Eventually humps were installed and with that, Iona was “delighted.” When one of the humps was “quite aggressive,” a contractor was called to lower it in size. With the humps fixed, Iona said the speeding has reduced “dramatically” which he appreciates because visibility is an issue on the road leading to numerous close encounters. Iona also applauded the board for their quick responsiveness and welcomed Supervisor John Beisel.
