Brentwood speeders need reality check

I noticed that a digital speed reader was installed on Keating Road just before the merge to the southbound lane of the Pat Bay Highway. What does it take to get one of these things on my road?

Last summer I attended a Central Saanich council meeting to present my concerns over excessive speeding on Marchant Road. The part of the road between Wallace and West Saanich is most concerning as it is a route for children commuting to the two schools in the area on a narrow road with no sidewalks.

I was told at the meeting that traffic calming options would be explored. Has anything happened? Six months later and nothing yet.
