Ocean Boulevard still a speedway

It seems that speed is still an issue along Ocean Boulevard.

It seems that speed is still an issue along Ocean Boulevard.

Since the bridge reopened, double solid lines painted on Ocean Boulevard and the 40 kilometre per hour signs posted, I have been passed a total of 12 times.

On July 23 at 8:15 a.m. a grey Honda CRV passed me as we came off the bridge heading towards Fort Rodd Hill. Seconds later a group of a dozen or so cyclists came around the corner in the oncoming lane.

I shudder at the thought of what could have happened had the CRV hit these cyclists.

This is the second time I’ve been passed on a Saturday morning coming out of the curve just after the bridge.

I’m a resident of the Lagoon area and I understand the importance of having the bridge open. However, I am one of many in the area that are sick of the aggressive driving both through the park and up and down our residential streets.

What will it take to get the message across for drivers to slow down? Ocean Boulevard is not a highway.
