Speeding drivers don’t make it safe place for kids to play

Could someone please ask the residents of this lovely town what they don’t understand about the speed limit in playground and school zones?

Dear Editor,

Could someone please ask the residents of this lovely town what they don’t understand about the speed limit in playground and school zones? Does no one see the giant 30km/h clearly painted on the road? Do they all think it means go 30 over the limit of 40 in town? Do any of these people have children? What is the hurry?

I walk through three playground zones, both ways every day and the number of people who just tear through makes me sick. If the police are bored and want to make a pile of money, they should hang out on Lakeway Drive near Winks for a couple of hours each day.

Maybe that would stop some of these morons from making it unsafe for my kids to play in the “playground zone”!

Between the texters, cell phone talkers and speeders in this town it certainly does not feel like a safe place for kids to play.
