Will council wait until it’s too late to address Comox traffic?

Dear editor,

Sharon Daly  is correct in identifying the left turn from Glacier View Drive (and Back Road) onto Comox Avenue, as dangerous. She may have even understated the problem, since some cars coming up the hill from Dyke Road aren’t doing just 60 km/h in the 50 km/h zone, but 70 km/h or more.

It’s equally dangerous from the other direction, turning left from Manor Drive or Rodello, or the hospital onto Comox Avenue.

The light at Anderton creates a string of cars from there, and a slow driver on Dyke Road creates a string coming the other way. Impatient drivers make risky turns to get into the traffic. I’m not sure what the best location for a light would be, since all of these intersections are affected.

But I’m sure town council will take action on the problem, right after someone is killed there.
