Letter: Use speed humps to help control traffic
Letter to the editor. Supplied

Dear editor:

Excellent commentary on the new proposed speed limits for Chautauqua streets and the tireless work of the Friends of Ryerson Park, especially Brian Crow, Shaun Devlin and John Scott.

But, as you mentioned, enforcement is another issue, (“Finding ways to address speed concerns,” The Lake Report, Jan. 25).

You touched on this in your editorial, but I feel that we need to press on with a tried and tested method, ie. street humps.

The arguments that these make snow plowing difficult and cause motorcyclists to become airborne don’t cut it.

According to the fount of all knowledge – Google – there are 522 streets in Toronto with humps. The residents really appreciate them, especially those with kids.
So, “let’s hump the streets.”
