Enforce the speed limits in Colwood, please

Resident concerned over ever-increasing speeds in neighbourhood

My letter is raising the issue of enforcing speed limits in the Colwood area, especially along Wishart Road and around the elementary school.

I have written to the City of Colwood expressing my concern over the growth in our municipality and the fact that our roads have become so much busier, and people seem to be driving even faster. Along with the type of growth we are experiencing, some thought to the infrastructure and our roads and safety has to be given.

Colwood needs to work with the West Shore RCMP and make sure the speed limits enforced. Case in point is the 30km speed limit in front of Wishart Elementary.  This is not just during school hours, but is 24/7 and that area is a hot spot for speed.

Tragedy can be avoided with proper enforcement.
