CENTERVILLE, Utah – – Families in Centerville said they’ve had cars crash in their yards multiple times after drivers take a turn too quickly without stopping, crashing through their fences.  

Some drivers are said to take the turn at speeds of 60 mph, posing serious danger. 

One family said they heard a crash but by the time they got outside, the car that caused the noise was gone.  Julianne Zollinger tells KSL-TV the worst part of the car crashing through their fence is that it’s happened before.

Zollinger wants the city to install more signage, street lights, and barriers because city ordinances prevent her and her husband from doing more, even from building a taller retaining wall.

“I told them last time this happened, if it happened again and a kid was there and someone died, wouldn’t they be liable for that? Then they just started taking my concern seriously,” she said.
 
Another homeowner near the intersection, Todd Haag, said the last time a car came through the fence, it ended up flipped over in the middle of their backyard.
 
As a result of the repeating crashes, Zollinger told KSL-TV she’s planning to attend the next city council meeting and she’s planning to take her neighbors with her.
