Enhancing safety

Seniors utilize scooters and courteous motorists kindly yield. It is ironic that such health conscious practises can result in death.

Our town has a strong pedestrian preference. We walk to do errands. We cycle and jog. We exercise our dogs and we stroll with our strollers.

How can safety be enhanced?

Slow down.

We presently have a set of speed limits which vary from 40-60 km/h. In such a small area a consistent limit of 40 km/h would affect travel time very little.

In addition to safety improvements there would be less air and noise pollution. What do you say Qualicum Beach? Let’s improve a town which is already among the best.
