ARNOLD, MO (KTVI)-- Michelle Tyler has lived on Glatt Drive in Arnold for more than 13 years and says there's a big problem on her small two lane street. She says people are speeding and it's become more worrisome because there are more kids in the area. She also says there have been some close calls.

Tyler contacted city hall with letters and calls for help and didn't get the answers she wanted. Fox 2 went to city hall and we're told citizens have to contact the city`s community development department.  They study problem areas for 3 month at a time to find the best solution.

"This is a cut through and because its a cut through people can avoid all of the traffic on Richardson and Old Lemay Ferry where they can avoid that traffic and cut through here," said Michelle Tyler. "We've actually had a car hit on this street because someone wasn't paying attention to what they were doing."

According to the Arnold Police Department more than 2,500 speeding tickets have been given out to drivers since January of 2011. As for Glatt Drive, police caught a few along with other violations.

The city says if citizens have issues they can stop by any city council meeting to have their say.
