I’m puzzled at the objection to speed reader displays in school zones, in the letter from G. R. Latham in your Dec. 5 issue.
Even new drivers, who supposedly just passed an exam on rules of the road, are speeding through playground and school zones.
The collective of voters in Oak Bay just made a bed that everyone will have to live in for four years. Hopefully, Latham will join we who advocate more police feet on the street to re-educate drivers.
Speed displays will not stop deliberately dangerous drivers, who will ignore them. But they sure obey the limits if they think they see a police vehicle – I’ve seen an amazing difference when a white van was parked before a speed zone, and total compliance when a police car was.
