I noticed that council decided to defer any immediate action regarding community safety zones in Fergus and will wait for further feedback from the “Roads Master Action Plan.”
It all sounds positive, but when I accessed the site, it would not let me suggest any comments regarding where I live. What good is this?
I fail to see what difference any waiting will make to the situation. Unless safety zones (40km/h and double fines) are implemented, it is not financially viable for the police to ticket a driver only doing 10km/h over the limit.
Safety zones with the increased fines would hopefully lead to more enforcement. The problem of vehicles zipping up and down the side streets of Fergus has been going on for years and it seems nothing will ever get done about it, any time soon.
