Speed limits

Armstrong resident questions speed and traffic patterns on city roads

The article of Roger Knox regarding speeders on Danallanko Drive is a issue to be looked at, but as they said, the corner of Rosedale Avenue and Okanagan Street and the traffic problem (speeders) in this area was looked at by Coun.  John Trainor many months ago.

To date, nothing has been done and the signs wont do anything.

There are no signs on Rosedale Avenue as this is 50 kilometres per hour,  but this doesn’t slow anyone down. I am sure if there was, it wouldn’t help.

I had suggested speed bumps but the reply was it would effect emergency vehicles. Gradual slope seems to work in other areas.

I was almost hit by someone driving through the stop signs , so now I try to get eye contact to see if they are going to stop or just drive through. Since I live close to corner, I am aware of many vehicles just slowing down or they  just drive straight through.

There is many ways to correct this but I am not the one who has the authority to administer these solutions or enforce them.
