Here's what I know you don't want. You don't want to hit a child crossing the street because you couldn't slow down in time. The few seconds you might save by travelling at, or above the speed limit, will never make up for what you will lose.
We can put all kinds of traffic calming measures in place, but in the end, it's an issue of personal responsibility, of caring about the consequences of your actions.
I'm sure you are a great driver. We all think we are pretty good. But again, that's not going to be much solace when a child --or an adult for that matter is injured.
The Clair Hills Association is working very hard to ensure all the measures can be put in place BEFORE something horrible happens. But it's really up to you. Slow down. Drive for the conditions. You might not be able to see around the snow banks...and pedestrians have just as much trouble negotiating ice and snow as you do.
No amount of laws, or threatened fines, or speed bumps, or police officers on the street will ever be enough to maintain safety, unless we...as drivers, make the decisions to drive in a responsible, and law abiding manner.
I'm sure wherever you have to be is really, really important.
But it pales to the price you will pay for one thoughtless move.
