Editor, The News:

Perhaps my reaction is knee-jerk, but I want to respond to Mr Joyner’s suggestion (The News, Jan. 13) of taking traffic up Ford Road to Baynes Road to relieve the congestion on Lougheed Highway.

I hope that the residents on Ford Road are consulted on this.

I, for one, don’t want this.

I doubt that any of the Ford Road residents will. Traffic on Ford Road is crazy already.  Excessive speeding, no respect for marked crosswalks, etc.

Where do you live Mr. Joyner?

Perhaps traffic can be rerouted along your street instead.
