A number of residents of Royal Vista Way in Crown Isle are concerned with an ongoing problem of speeding vehicles on the street.

According to a July 20-28 traffic count conducted by the City, a total of 15,686 vehicles passed along Royal Vista. Of those, more than 5,500 exceeded the speed limit of 50 km/h. One motorist clocked in at 103 km/h.

Residents say the speeders present a danger to pedestrians, cyclists and golfers who cross Royal Vista at the golf cart crossings. They request Courtenay council consider road narrowing as a form of traffic calming.

Coun. Manno Theos said flashing speed limit signs could also work.
