BROOKLYN - The owners and staff of the Wonder Years Daycare & Learning Center in Canarsie say they are concerned about speeding cars near the business.
Despite the speed limit being 25 mph, there are no signs near the Ralph Avenue day care enforcing it. Michael Thomas and his daughter, who own the center, say they have reached out to the Department of Transportation asking for speed limit signs to be installed. They have not yet heard back.
The owners also say that since many cars do not slow down when passing the day care, they would like for a police officer equipped with a radar gun to be stationed on the street.

Limited parking in the area often causes parents to cross the busy road with their kids, which could lead to tragedy, Thomas says.
Parents tell News 12 that they want to make sure their children are in a safe environment when they are dropped off.
