That's Manson resident Pat Hautenne at the most recent Manson Community Council meeting, speaking about the need for something that would slow drivers down through town. Hautenne lives on Manson Boulevard, and has not only seen accidents happen, he's been the victim of one:

Hautenne was at the Council meeting asking if a “speed hump” could be put on the Boulevard past the fire station. A speed hump is different from a speed bump in that while a speed bump is a sudden jolt to the vehicle, a speed hump is a gradual incline and a gradual decline, and research shows it to reduce speeds by up to 15 miles per hour. But Hautenne says he got no encouragement from Chelan County when he went to ask about putting one in:

Speeding through Manson has been an issue for a long time. The speed limit on Manson Boulevard is 25 miles per hour; at the Community Council meeting, the idea of asking it be reduced to 20 miles per hour got support, with the council voting to request a change in the speed limit from Lake Chelan Building Supply to the intersection of Manson Boulevard and Botske Avenue.
