Some residents in a McDonough community near the Square say speeding is a serious issue, and police tell us they are aware of the problem. 

Andrew Anderson has lived on Macon Street in McDonough for two years now.

"We absolutely love it here," said Anderson.

But Anderson says the biggest problem on Macon Street is the speeding. He says the 35 mile per hour speed limit isn't taken seriously by the many cars driving the street. 

"It's almost like living on a highway actually" said Anderson."Semi tractor trailers you name it they just go flying through here with reckless abandonment."

Standing right outside of his home, Anderson points to cars coming by on a stretch of road that often has children nearby. He tells me there is a real fear especially for those who have kids. 

"How could you stop, how could you even slow down going as fast as these cars right now are going if a kid were to dart close how could they possibly even slow down?"

According to Anderson, he does see McDonough Police officers in the area and we actually did see an officer on Macon Street today. But Anderson says he wants drivers to be stopped to make sure they understand not to speed. 

CBS46 reached out to McDonough Police and they confirmed they are aware of the speeding issue and officers are patrolling.
