just about got smoked at the super value crosswalk last week again, chased down the driver and reminded him, ya you in the purple ford truck, that there was a speed limit in that area and got laughed at, yesterday the girlfriend and I were walking across it and a car tried to dodge between me and her to get through between us while on the crosswalk and again today a orange-yellow ford pickup, 90s style with an orange flashing light on the left side of the cab, blew by us while we were crossing on the crosswalk, please consider your family when trying to save seconds to make it home, could be your spouse or kid that gets killed there, bettcha it would matter if you had to attend a funeral cause someone wasnt paying attention.
Wise up losers, family matters

I will not argue that there may be the odd person speeding on that stretch of road. That said I figure it was just a money grab. I ride my bicycle to work down there and see vehicles from a different angle. Never yet have I seen any aggressive driving. I find the people respect all of us on bicycles quite well and hats off to them! What about all the people that speed up Haisla hill every day where it is 60 Km/ hr ?
dont u have better things to do
