Litton keeps a sharp eye on her as she notices a car driving their direction. The car zips past and turns right on Concord Drive, at the end of Mayfield. Litton shakes her head and says, “You can’t tell me that person was doing 25 miles per hour. I just don’t believe it.” For the next few minutes, Litton observes the traffic on her street. Car after car – more than you’d expect on a residential street at 3:30 in the afternoon – passes by, many of them going at a good clip.
