TRAFFIC/PEDESTRIAN SAFETY

Once again traffic safety has become an issue in the community, following an accident that occurred near the

community league playground. 

 

The league has contacted the Office of Traffic Safety and will be circulating a petition recommending some strategies for consideration including, but not limited to;  additional signage, painted crosswalks at high risk intersections to remind drivers and pedestrians of safe places to cross, & 30k speed limits around playgrounds and playing fields.  In the meantime if you wish to document your concerns, including suggestions for improvement, please send them in writing to Ruth at paniruta@gmail.com.

 

Please be extra careful as you drive through the neighbourhood and keep an eye out for children, runaway

balls (which often precede children), and pets. Watch for cyclists, big and small, and remember the posted speed

limit through the neighbourhood is 40 kph. Thank you!
