"Ridge Road, South Elgin"

This is a neighbor and family-friendly street. Neighbors watch out for each other and their homes, and keep their yards neat and tidy. A public elementary school is within walking distance, making this street perfect for families with children.

But this street is a through-street to another subdivision, and for that reason people tend to drive down Ridge Road faster than the posted 25mph, if they are not from the area.

In the winter, snow removal is usually quick here, much quicker and more thorough than just a few blocks over in Elgin. Plus the streets in this South Elgin subdivision are somewhat wider than in the close-by Elgin subdivision. This makes for easier driving when the streets have snow piles on the roadside.
