Help Me Hayley: Spokane family fed up with reckless drivers

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

A Spokane family is fed up of drivers behaving recklessly on a gravel stretch of road near a popular park.

"It's ridiculous," said Kaitlyn Stevenson. "People will just fly down this road. All I can think of is what if a child was there?"

On Sunday, the family's security cameras captured dangerous driving on the gravel portion of Lacey Street leading to Chief Garry Park.

"No exaggeration they were almost on two wheels," Kaitlyn said.

The new mom has been left feeling defeated.

" In the year I've lived here I've seen one cop car go by," she said.

That's because, the department's traffic unit likely wasn't aware of the issue. "Help Me Hayley" made sure they are now.

"I made some calls on your behalf to try to get a solution to this," Hayley told the family.

The Spokane Police Department has a traffic hotline anyone can report issues to. We left a detailed message and received a call back within two hours. SPD Officials added the area to a list of locations officers will scope out.

Kaitlyn is now hopeful something will finally change…before it's too late.

If you would like to report dangerous activity to the traffic hotline, call 509-625-4150.

The Oregonian reports that the Clatsop County sheriff's office accused Marlin Lee Larson of several crimes after the boater told investigators he couldn't see where he was driving because the dash of his boat was blocking his view when he was sitting down.
