School zone speed

I was hoping to use you as a medium to the public to shine a spot light on people speeding in school zones.

I was hoping to use you as a medium to the public to shine a spot light on people speeding in school zones.  My son attends Vedder Elementary School on Promontory Road.  This road has heavier traffic than some of the busy roads in Burnaby where we used to live.  It sickens me to see people that are in such a hurry throughout the day that they are more than willing to put my child (and all the other students) lives at risk.  Besides the posted speed limit/school zone signs and the random speed traps, people just don’t seem to get it.  What is it going to take for drivers to take note, the fatality of someone’s child?  I certainly hope that with the summer season upon us drivers make note that kids are going to be everywhere and to pay attention when driving…..Don’t speed!

I hope to see progress in this matter in the fall when our beloved children return to school.
