Dangerous Road

We live on Corcan Road in North Qualicum. Everyday is a nightmare walking to the bus stop.

We live on Corcan Road in North Qualicum. Everyday is a nightmare walking to the bus stop.

We live on a narrow, windy road. Approximately 90 per cent of the drivers speed past us and of that, approximately 75 per cent excessively.

There are no sidewalks and very little shoulders on a lot of it. We have asked for help from the regional district and were told it’s not their problem. We talked to the provincial Ministry of Transportation and were told it was an RCMP issue. The constable who does the traffic control in this area has been wonderful but has limited time to help us.

Who is responsible for making the roads safe for children? I have had vehicles come within a foot of me speeding while I was carrying my two-year-old on my shoulders. Why can we not get any help?

This is an everyday occurrence.

I am very frustrated with being blown off and not being able to get any help. What happens when someone gets hurt? Who’s responsible then?
