THE BRONX - Residents are praising speed bumps and a slow zone that were implemented in Claremont two years ago.

The city installed nine new speed bumps and 14 new slow-zone entryways throughout the neighborhood in an effort to slow drivers down to 20 mph. The consensus among residents is that it has proved to be effective.

They say it's far safer now for kids playing in the neighborhood streets. Councilman Jimmy Vacca says more speed bumps still need to be installed around the Bronx and it isn't happening fast enough.

Vacca also says that despite needing more slow zones, the number of traffic and pedestrian accidents has gone down since the current slow zones were put in place.
