Speeders targeted

One Armstrong resident is concerned about heavy traffic and speed on a city street.

One Armstrong resident is concerned about heavy traffic and speed on a city street.

Rona Correale feels motorists on Okanagan Avenue south of Rosedale Avenue are not obeying the posted speed limit.

“There are trucks hauling soil daily, which adds to the normal car traffic, and they also appear to not obey the speed limit,” wrote Correale in a letter to council.

Correale said she and other neighbours have spoken to the RCMP, but understand police have other priorities and can’t continually enforce the speed limit.

Correale called for the city to enforce speed restrictions on Okanagan Avenue “by whatever means are needed.”

“Staff has forwarded this matter to the RCMP for traffic enforcement, and have advised the writer (Correale),” said city administrator Melinda Stickney.

RCMP have advised the city they do conduct traffic enforcement in the area and will step up activities and work to address the residents’ concerns.
