Everyone loves traffic. Well, everyone loves to complain about traffic. It’s a popular subject and much like the weather, everyone has an opinion.
For those that are just trying to get home, cutting through a neighbourhood to reach your destination quicker is advantageous. If you happen to live in that neighbourhood, you don’t think so.
So it’s interesting to see what the City is piloting to try to get people to slow down, or at least, pay more attention.
The Ottawa Citizen has a report on a City pilot to put signs in the middle of certain roads. Interesting concept and currently not proposed for the Alta Vista ward. However, Councillor Hume, through his Safe Streets program is trying out street painting and a 40km/h zone for the entire Riverview Park community.
