That Should Not Be The Question
Thanks for delegating and writing this, Melissa. It would seem to me that to truly make streets safer it comes down to their design. People drive 80+ on Bingemans Centre Drive because it’s 4 lanes + bike paint so it feels like a highway. Are you aware if the city’s engineers are changing their standards and designs to evolve with this discussion?
Fascinating that here in the U.S. it's so natural to add speed bumps and call it a day. Love the intentionality behind your recommendations, especially "separated cycling infrastructure before the speed limit is changed and without impacting other planned projects".
Thank you for the article. I'm not sure I read anything about the motivation or reasons behind changing the speed limit for that particular road so soon after the previous change.
I drive down Keats Way sometimes, there are 2 schools I pass by. I have no issues with reducing my speed to 30 Km/h at any time of the day or year.
