I live on the Front Road, west of Chute a Blondeau, which should be a nice, bucolic, quiet country road, but it is not.
We have to live with a variety of loud and fast vehicles, Harleys, big diesel pickups, and small Japanese cars and bikes. Our speed limit is 70 Km/hr. Most vehicles travel by at well over the limit, and I estimate up to 160 km/hr or higher.
People along this road have been complaining to the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) about speeding and noise for years. I have talked to many neighbours who have called. Yet, no effective, visible action has been taken to mitigate the problem. It’s interesting because setting up a speed trap would be like shooting fish in a barrel.
At this point, I am wondering about my options to motivate some action. Do I have to sue the OPP, or organize a class action?
At this point, I hope that the OPP can provide a response, in the Review, to explain what they are doing, or impediments to responding to the many calls they have received.
It is time for something to be done.
