I've lived in my present home for 13 years but I've lived in the Durand for over 20 years. I've seen traffic get worse in this neighbourhood and the speeding and cut-through increase. Someone was literally killed two weeks ago. THere are collisions weekly on Bay between Charlton and Bold. I have a friend who lost his leg, as a pedestrian, because of speeding traffic on Herkimer last year. Someone else can dig up the most recent deaths and serious accidents. I'm not going to bother but when I say the traffic on Bay, Charlton, Herkimer and others is dangerous, it's not just because ONE terrible thing happened. Terrible things happen constantly. THe only thing I can think to make it safer and reduce the number car-on-car collisions, bike and pedestrian strikes, is to dramatically reduce speed. If people have other, better ideas I am totally open to hearing them. I think now is the time to take action on this.
