Letters: Aggressive driving potentially fatal

Dear Editor,

What’s the deal with aggressive drivers?

Saturday morning, April 18, in Murrayville: I’m travelling west down the one-lane road of 48th Avenue, signal to turn left on 217A Street. An aged red pickup truck is speeding directly behind me at 80 clicks! 

The 20-something male in the truck drives up onto the south sidewalk and the new bike lane. He takes out three white pylons and passes me on the right. 

I honk as a warning, and he looks at me like a deer in headlights. 

What’s your hurry? Need to get down to the round- about straight away? Only to pile on your brakes…

Two days prior, heading west in the same area, there was a three-car fender-bender pileup.

A few years back, a lovely, well known elderly lady was killed walking east up the north sidewalk on 48th. Same bad attitude and judgment from that driver in a hit and run.

Your life is too short. Stay calm and drive with common sense and responsibility.

It’s time for bright yellow speed bumps on 48th. As this area is never monitored by the RCMP, it’s time for safety improvements.

Kim Stordy, Langley
