Damn amazing how nothing gets done until someone has to pay the ultimate price, before such expenditures can be “justified”.
What is the bill for the preventative measures [that apparently are going to be spent now], as opposed to the “additional” end costs, such as those now associated with this poor fellows demise?
Kind of makes me curious exactly “who” will be the next victim will be on that steep, narrow hill starting at 100 block Clifton Rd. N, who has to sacrifice his/her/their lives, in order to justify changing the speed limit to 30kph, and putting down a paltry $2000 [or less ] for a couple of speed bumps to make sure those idiots slow down.
Some of these morons have been clocked at over 90kph on that road, with pedestrians, pets, blind driveways and no sidewalks, and barely a shoulder [ except a ditch] to walk on [ or escape to]. It’s only a matter of time, but it will happen.
RCMP certainly don’t think it’s important to patrol it, that’s pretty evident, because virtually everyone speeds excessively in that area, knowing full well, they will never get caught. Guess the financial pickings are much better at the much more lucrative sites, rather than keeping pedestrians safe on the streets.
Our system is getting to the point where the lawyers are making ALL the decisions, and before anything can be spent, it has to be “seriously” justified. I can only surmise that since they run everything anyway, it seems to be carefully orchestrated to ensure they can line their own pockets in the process, and continue to nail the taxpayer at every opportunity.
It’s time those that are installed to protect our interests begin doing the job they are being paid to do – TODAY!!
