Most driv­ers break park­way speed lim­its

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Safety on the RHVP and Linc

I was alarmed at the num­ber of ac­ci­dents re­ported on these two park­ways re­cently in The Spec. I drove from Mud Street to Up­per James and re­cently no­ticed three cruis­ers on duty in that short dis­tance.

I also no­ticed sev­eral max­i­mum 90 signs have been added to the Linc. I pur­posely set my cruise con­trol at 90 km/h and I sus­pected that I would be passed by every car ap­proach­ing from be­hind, and I was right. I’m con­vinced that the main cause of ac­ci­dents on this park­way is speed over the max­i­mum limit and fol­low­ing too closely.

I also won­dered if po­lice mon­i­tor­ing has in­creased re­cently and par­tic­u­larly dur­ing com­mute times. Jim McIn­tosh, Bin­brook
