Install a speed bump in that area . The data collected does not meet the criteria for installing a speed bump or traffic island. At least 10% of the total traffic must be going 10+ mph over the speed limit. We did not meet the requirement. The county will not install a speed bump or any other type of speed control, even if it was privately funded.
Install a stop sign where Red Birch crosses Rustling Oaks, turning it into a 4-way stop. This intersection does not meet the rigorous criteria established for adding a stop sign. The area in question does not meet any requirement for county-funded or privately-funded speed control.

Collect any accident data and report it to SCHOA to add to the results of this study. Example: Accident at Rustling Oaks just north of Fox Den that took out a streetlight pole and small tree in mid-December, 2011.
Anne Arundel County has offered to place speed boards near the area in question. Ms. Claudia O’Keefe has been notified that we would like a board. The board only displays the motorist’s speed and does not issue a ticket. The boards are displayed five weekdays at a time.
We can request police patrol for high-traffic areas to issue tickets. This only works intermittently, as does the speed boards. We should use these methods sparingly but consistently.
