Letter: What are police doing to enforce speed?

No Oak Bay thoroughfare seems exempt from concerns about speed

There have been a few letters recently in the Oak Bay News complaining about speeding in our community.

It seems that no thoroughfare is exempt, from what I have read.

There is no point in going to public works or whichever department asking to reduce the speed limits because they can reduce them as much as they want but who will enforce them?

That seems to be the million-dollar question.

We have a police force in Oak Bay and we pay a hefty chunk of our property taxes to run it.

Maybe some of these letter writers should contact the chief constable and ask what they are doing about speeders (and stop signs).

As to parking your vehicle on the street across from your neighbour to create a wedge, it’s an invitation to damage.
