Slow­ing down saves lives

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL - Joanne Lord MacLeod, Char­lot­te­town

I see by this morn­ing's Guardian that the RCMP is crack­ing down on speed­ing.

That makes me stop and think of the day I was driv­ing along North River Rd. through the school zone by Queen Char­lotte Ju­nior High school. That 30 km/hr speed zone lasts al­most un­til one reaches Kirk­wood Dr. It was lunch time and the driver of the car be­hind me must have been aw­fully hun­gry, or some­thing, be­cause he pulled out and passed me.

I know I lis­tened when the mes­sage came out that speed­ers would be charged at dou­ble the go­ing rate and de­merit points the same, that I didn't want to have that hap­pen to me! Some­times it is very hard to keep the speed down; but it may save lives around a school.
