Paint the curbs

It is the fact that the curbs in and around town are not painted anymore

I live in the Parksville area. I need to rant about a concern that I have. It is the fact that the curbs in and around town are not painted anymore.

I wonder how many of us find it hard to see the curb, especially at night. When turning into and coming out of a driveway from a business, how many times do we run over the curb, because we can’t see where it is?

The curbs are the same color as the road. I myself really appreciate when I see one that’s still painted. Is it because of the cost of the paint? I have a suggestion: why not paint the curbs intermittently, with stripes, instead of solid yellow? This would use a quarter of the paint. Could the corners at least be painted?  I wonder if this is a safety issue that needs to be looked at again by the powers that be. I’m sure my tax dollar can afford the cost of having better marked sidewalks, curbs and roadways.
