Roundabout efficient

Chemainus – Roundabouts are a very efficient way of controlling traffic; accidents are extremely rare and everyone keeps moving.

Turning left from River Road onto Chemainus Road is a nightmare; visibility is very limited in both directions and the through traffic is, on average, 10 to 20 km/h over the 40 km/h speed limit.

When our present mayor was canvassing for votes, he assured me that was one of his top priorities and I only hope he honours his commitment.

I notice that all of the detractors live somewhere else, not in Chemainus, and certainly not on River Road where traffic has increased dramatically in the last few years.

Nobody likes to see their taxes go up and these people see no benefit to themselves and it seems rather selfish to me.
