Desiree Abraham has lived off of Julian Drive for years with no problems.
However, for the past three years, she's had some bad luck with drivers.
"I've not had one, not two, but three years in a row, on New Year’s Day, I lose mailboxes,” Abraham said.
The process of fixing the damaged mailboxes has cost her hundreds of dollars over the past three years.
And the most recent time may have been the worst one.
"They hit one of my renter’s cars. Did damage to the car. Took out the mailbox,” Abraham said.
Abraham isn't the only neighbor concerned.
Other neighbors said they have had property damaged from drivers due to how narrow the road.
They're urging drivers to be more cautious going through the neighborhood.
"So, slow it down. You know, slow it down to the speed limit that is supposed to be 30 miles an hour,” Abraham said.
Public Works crews have even had traffic engineers exam the road.
They said the stop signs they have added have helped.
But Abraham believes installing speed bumps is the best way to go.
"It's been tried, true and tested. It's used in Europe; it's used in the United States, and it’s used in other cities. It’s used in small towns. Why can't we get them here?" Abraham asked.
She said Cleveland is a wonderful place to live.
And the best way to fix this problem is to come together as a community.
Channel 3 reached out to the City of Cleveland about the situation.
They weren't able to make a comment at this time.
