Watch your speed

Can anyone from the municipality tell me why the speed reader boards were removed from Cadboro Bay Road?

Can anyone from the municipality tell me why the speed reader boards were removed from Cadboro Bay Road by the golf course to the school zone at Willows?

The speed readers were a big help in reducing the high speeds by the golf course which had been deemed one of the deadliest stretches of road for deer incidents.

From day one, we as drivers were taught that school zones were always 30 km/h so the placing of these in school zones baffles me. Just like seeing three Oak Bay constables with a radar gun on Oak Bay Avenue in front of the municipal hall. Does anyone really speed along there? Is it even possible?
