Residents of North Prospect Street are upset about speeding on their residential street.

Folks on Prospect are especially worried now because springtime means even more cars as fair-weather golfers discover Patty Jewett Golf Course.
In the morning, golfers line up down the east edge of the street waiting for early tee times, parking in the rough and creating their own hazard for commuters. At night, golfers who spent too much time drinking in the clubhouse are an even more dangerous hazard, residents say.

The residents want something done — speed humps, a round-about at the intersection of Prospect and Espanola Street, or more stop signs. Unfortunately, Colorado Springs traffic engineers say there is no money in the 2008 budget to help.
Some Prospect residents believe commuters use their street as a cut-through to avoid this goofy intersection on Paseo Road and Fontanero Street.
