Cherith Moore, center, and her children Olivia, 6, left, and Sage, 9, stand outside of their home on Alexander Avenue in Columbia on Tuesday. Cherith Moore, concerned with the heavy traffic flow on her street, which is home to many families with young children and pets, circulated a petition asking the city to construct two new speed humps and impose a 20 mph speed limit on the street. With help from First Ward Councilman Paul Sturtz, Cherith Moore and about 10 other residents were successful in their petition.
