Slow down and start obeying the speed limits

Safety needs to be a priority as you drive through the city streets

Editor, The News:

To the woman who just about killed a young couple crossing Dewdney Trunk Road at 207th Street.

I caught up to you at 203rd Street and said “it looked to me like you were gunning it towards that couple.”

You said, “where?”

I can’t believe you would be paying so little attention to the speed limit and your whereabouts.

When I saw them three-quarters of the way over the four-lane road, and then so no brake lights from your vehicle, I freaked.

I screamed to myself and saw the looks on their faces as they narrowly escaped your vehicle.

What will it take for you people to stop speeding and tailgating and paying no attention?

The speed limit is not 90 kilometres and hour.

There are three high schools on your way along this road and our kids should not have to worry about being hit due to your utter carelessness.

Wake up and start obeying the speed limits.

It might be your family member you save.
