Speeding in Richmond – Safe Streets Petition

As Ottawa City Council considers Photo-Radar a local resident has expressed his concerns about speeding on Perth St. and asked the RVA to consider: … “posting a link to let our councillor know that we would like photo radar to enforce speeding laws, especially down Perth Street where I have personally witnessed speeds exceeding 80 kilometres per hour!”

If you have similar concerns about speeding and want your say, visit http://safestreetsottawa.ca/content/safe-streets-ottawa and bring your concerns to the attention of Councillor Scott Moffatt!

And while we are at it here is a really interesting twist on Radar used in Portugal that adds social shame to the formula! http://ideas.4brad.com/portugals-velocidade-controlada-speed-control-traffic-signals

Slow down out there ….

  1. I would also like to add Huntley Road as another problem area, the 50km/h zone is being treated as a drag strip at all times of day. Speeds are exceeding 100km/h long before the road becomes an 80km/h zone. I would love to see some police with a speed trap here more often as it is obscene how fast people are going next to a public park.
