Royal Oak police stepping up patrols to stop dangerous drivers on Woodward Avenue

 Royal Oak police are stepping up patrols this summer along Woodward Avenue, intending to stop unsafe driving after dozens of complaints of drag racing in the city.

Homeowner’s living in the area are saying that the issue is a quality of life issue because of the noise. They are also saying it is a safety issue because of the speed and racing.

The constant revving of engines up and down Woodward Avenue is as loud as a Metallica concert as vehicles hit 100 or more ear-damaging decibels every time a driver shows off by hitting the gas.

Kelly Vesprini lives a block off of Woodward Avenue in Royal Oak, and the engine noise is unbearable.
