Please, drivers, go with the flow

Dear editor,

There have been major and important traffic changes in our neighbourhood, at Menzies and Fourth and Fifth in Courtenay.

Dear editor,

There have been major and important traffic changes in our neighbourhood, at Menzies Avenue and Fourth and Fifth streets near downtown Courtenay.

There is now no access from Menzies onto Fourth Street.

Despite ample signage and reconstruction of the road, several drivers are either ignoring this change or stuck in their old habits of taking a shortcut down to Puntledge School. This is dangerous, illegal, and frustrating.

Much residents’ and City work went into these upgrades and changes for the safety and calming of Fourth and Fifth streets.

There is also a new pedestrian crossing light at the intersection of Menzies and Fifth that is an important safety addition to that crossing for residents and schoolchildren.

We are asking drivers to be aware of, respect, and adhere to these changes before there is an accident or injury.

L. McLean,
