LETTERS: Daycare could bring needed lower speed limit

We really need more children because only then can us “Oldies” look back on our own lives and say “well done.”

We are long-time residents of Lee Avenue, “Old Fogies” and grandparents.

Our neighbourhood had its most dramatic change after the big wind storm in 2006. Both my husband and I support the planned daycare on Yorkton Avenue. It would be wonderful to maybe finally get a 30 kilometre per hour speed limit in the area: on Yorkton, Lee and Elm Avenues, Southbeach Drive, Parkview Street and Cypress Street.

This is something we have been lobbying for years now. This is where it’s happening, especially during the summer months. But, even year round there are playgrounds, ball parks and of course beaches.

We need to get the muscle (or shall I say aggressive) and ignorant drivers to slow down. Last August we had a fatal hit and run incident at the corner of Skaha Lake Road and Lee Avenue.

Please, please, please we need drivers to slow down and especially if we are going to have more little ones in our lives and in our streets. And we really need more children because only then can us “Oldies” look back on our own lives and say “well done.”
