Slow down, save a Maple Ridge senior

Thanks for the light but drivers still need to be cautious

Editor, The News:

We, the seniors who use the seniors’ centre and the Legion, and who live in that area, thank the District of Maple Ridge and its engineering department for the installation of a pedestrian traffic light on 224th Street at 121 Avenue.

We now feel much safer crossing those streets, and you well may have saved some injuries and fatalities.

Now that the light is there, we hope that motorists will be more cautious driving in the area and more aware of pedestrian traffic, which is very heavy there.

As our traffic control committee’s motto asks, please “Slow down and save a senior.”
