GODLEY (CBSDFW.COM) – Alleged speeding in a Godley neighborhood is so severe, some parents won’t let their kids play outside. On top of that, the Johnson County Sheriff says he can’t write drivers speeding tickets.
“You’ll just hear them gun it. It’s like a raceway,” says homeowner Stacey Naradovy. “When you’ve got your kids, you want them to be able to play and not fear that some car is going to come out of nowhere.”READ MORE: ERCOT Shuts Down Wholesale Electricity Provider Griddy In Texas
The speed limit on Windridge Drive is 25 miles per hour. Residents of the subdivision, which is still under construction, asked the builder to add speed bumps.
In a letter, Riverside Homebuilders says, “The public roads in the subdivision are under the control of the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department.”

“The road itself is a private road, so we are not able to enforce traffic violations on it,” he says.
The builder did install the speed limit signs, but as for speed bumps, the builder said no.
The sheriff tells CBS11 once approved by the county, the roads’ will be called county roads.MORE NEWS: Plumber Shortage, Supply Chain Issues Delay North Texas Winter Storm Repairs
