Why has Fraser â€œHighwayâ€ â€“ also fondly known as Fraser Road by those of us who know and hate it, and use it regularly â€“ had the speed limit reduced to 70 km/h from 80 km/h, when it has been expanded to four lanes to 232nd Street?
You can do the same speed (between 60 and 70 km/h) or better on 16th Avenue, with less lights and less morons doing the dog-in-manger trick, keeping us from doing the posted speed limit.
Fraser Highway has lights at almost every intersection, slowing traffic significantly, in spite of Township Councillor Charlie Foxâ€™s â€œgreen wave.â€
Try driving from Aldergrove to Langley with a moron who thinks that doing 60 km/h in an 80 km/h zone is okay from 264th Street to 232nd, and then stays
in the newly expanded passing/centre lane.
So where do we go?
And then there is a 70 km/h zone so this moron feels justified in slowing the rest of us down.
When we are trying to reduce pollution, why are we slowing things down?
Why open up a road and then reduce the speed?
Why put traffic lights at intersections that, for all intents and purposes, are not â€œintersections,â€ but just streets with access to a major road?
Iâ€™m a taxpayer. My tax money is paying for widening Fraser Highway and the lights, and all I get is a road with a reduced speed zone that allows morons who donâ€™t know or donâ€™t understand how to drive to slow down those of us who are trying to get from A to B at or perhaps a little above the posted speed limit with limited interruption by traffic lights.
