BROOKLYN - Boerum Hill residents say they've formed their own traffic task force in an effort to get drivers to slow down in their neighborhood.

Task force members include residents and people affiliated with the office of Councilman Steve Levin (D-33rd District). The group says it wants to be a part of the Department of Transportation's traffic-calming program and lower the speed limit in certain areas from 30 mph to 20 mph.

According to the task force, several Boerum Hill intersections have become congested and dangerous due to speedy drivers. It says it's also exploring other measures, including putting a traffic light at the intersection of Dean Street and Boerum Place.
