Flaherty Speed Limits Referral


Noted in the 2007/09/10 ETC Meeting Agenda. The 7th report of the Transportation Advisory Committee notes that it referred a 2007/06/06 communication from C. Flaherty to city staff for “an appropriate response.” Apparently, the communication proposes reduced speed limits on roads “to safely accomodate alternate means of transportation such as bussing, walking and biking.” If that’s the case, then it would appear to be in step with what I’ve been advocating for a long while. Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to find a copy of the Flaherty communication on the city website, so that’s all I can say about it (in fact, TAC Agendas and Minutes don’t appear to be available on the city website either… so much for accessibility). Lets hope that the referral of this apparently pedestrian-friendly initiative to city staff is above-board and results in a response to ETC, as opposed to the dishonest manner in which my proposal for a Pedestrian Committee was handled!
