LETTERS: Slowing down already slow traffic pointless

Taxpayers need to replace the municipal council with the crazy idea that “traffic calming” already slow moving traffic is a good idea.

Taxpayers need to replace the municipal councils that have this crazy idea that “traffic calming” already painfully slow moving traffic is a good idea.

I have no idea where View Royal gets the notion that wasting money, water and increasing air pollution with even more landscaping obstructions on Helmcken Road is good for their taxpayers and the commuters that use the roads.

Traffic is like a river and building dam after dam just creates chaos.

As the new Eagle Creek development will increase traffic backup even more, it is a perfect opportunity to widen Helmcken to make two lanes northbound between Watkiss Way and Burnside Road West to allow right turn traffic to exit quickly onto Burnside, reducing congestion.
