HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - The Tiny Town tourist attraction in Hot Springs has a big traffic problem. It’s been hit by 11 cars in the last 53 years.

The Sentinel-Record reports (https://bit.ly/29kQ2lE ) a vehicle jumped the curb up the street from the property Monday, ran through the neighboring lawn and collided into the rear section of the building, damaging the attraction’s souvenir shop.

Tiny Town is a house-like structure where visitors can view an interactive miniature city. Charles Moshinskie, owner of Tiny Town, says the collision marks the 11th time in the 53 years his family has owned the building that a vehicle has damaged it. The last time was in January.

Denny McPhate, Hot Springs Public Works director, says the incidents are caused by drivers not respecting the 25 mph posted speed limit.
