HOUSTON, Miss. (WTVA) - Community leaders in Houston are looking into adding speed bumps to three neighborhood roads.

Scott Street, Pittsboro Street and Starkville Road are all being considered.

According to a Houston police officer, all three roads are in school zones.

The officer said parents who are speeding to drop off and pick up their children from school are a major part of the problem.

Homeowners in the community believe the speed bumps would be a great addition due to the number of children that live in the areas.

The officer said the topic was discussed during a board meeting at city hall recently, and now the administration is in the process of approving the addition.
