Letter: Speed bumps are the answer to many problems
File photo.

Dear editor:

Speed bumps and more speed bumps are what we need!

While issues are debated and minds are indecisive, just put these “traffic calming” agents to work.

Try them all along Queen Street. Put them at Simcoe, Victoria, King and Wellington to start. 

You can still collect for parking fees but the driving through will be much reduced. 

The motorcyclists will have to cut their speed on Queen and their noise and pollution will be reduced – an enhancement for the town 

And since we cannot seem to afford several speed-minders or traffic lights, and speeding is another big problem,  put other speed bumps along Mississagua Street at the NOTL Community Centre and at King and Mary as well while  we are at it.
