I’ve written to individual councillors and to (Central Saanich) council as a whole on this matter but to date have had no response.
What I have asked is who imposed the 40 km per hour speed limit along West Saanich Road from south of Keating Cross Road to the village entrance and for what reason.
I can see the logic to the 40 km limit within the village but why all the way to old West Saanich Road?
I have been honked at, yelled at, fingered and worse whenever I have tried to obey this unnecessary speed limit. Now I just go with the flow of traffic.
The flow of traffic is 50 km/hr-plus along that stretch so it seems that most taxpayers agree the speed limit of 40 km is too slow for a secondary highway such as West Saanich Road.
I live on a residential road in Brentwood Bay where people walk and dogs and children play, yet the speed limit is 50 km/hr. Why doesn’t council look into this matter and return the speed limit to 50 km per hour along our highway?
Why create law breakers out of otherwise responsible citizens?
