On Sunday, I drove in to Colwood to watch my granddaughter play in a hockey tournament and needless to say, the road was dangerous.
To begin with, the painted lines are almost invisible. The right-hand side “white lines” are actually dark grey, making it almost impossible to judge the right side of the road.
The centre lines are also faded and if it weren’t for the small amber dots on the centre line, one would not know where the centre line is.
The one saving grace is the reflective posts on the road curves, which somewhat help.
It is about time that a quality reflective paint with crushed glass be used to mark our roads. There are hundreds of Sooke citizens who must commute to the city, Langford, and Colwood on a daily basis in the dark and come home in the dark.
Perhaps the highways minister be made to live in Sooke from November to April and commute to the Legislature every day to get the idea about our road.
What do you say Premier? After all you do represent the citizens of Sooke, or so it would seem.
