Letter: Drivers, just slow down

This is regarding the Cedar Hill X Road letter – and I totally concur with this writer.

I live between Lansdowne and Cedar Hill X roads. This is a speedway that must be addressed.

The worst thing that can happen is to hit and kill a deer. The second worst thing is to hear the screech and the thud right in front of you. This has happened way too much on this stretch.

I once had to help a distraught grandma pull a mangled (fawn) from under her car while her little grand-daughter sat in hysterics beside the road.

Speed limits  have been dropped around Victoria  and I think we should expand this into Oak Bay, some areas more than others. This is one of those areas. As a resident of this street, I am all in favour of speed humps and at least a slower speed limit along this stretch.

It’s not just the fawns, I have kids who bike on this road. Can we please just slow down.

It will take less than 30 seconds out of your day to slow down – if you kill a baby it will stay with you much longer than that – guaranteed

Yes, we have a deer problem. Until we figure out what to do please stop this unnecessary slaughter on this bit of road.
