RE: RHVP safety

As a daily user of the Red Hill Val­ley Park­way and a nearby res­i­dent, I can at­test to the speed that some driv­ers feel they can get away with. That does not take away from the fact that it can be a tricky road to drive, es­pe­cially in wet con­di­tions.

One area not men­tioned so far is the curve at the top in the tran­si­tion to the Linc. This seems to have been poorly de­signed and/or poorly built. It is not a smooth arc like most broad curves. One could eas­ily stray from one’s lane if not pay­ing close at­ten­tion.

It would be a bless­ing for all con­cerned if in fu­ture we heard fewer sirens re­spond­ing to calls on this road. Ron Har­rod, Hamil­ton
