Trillium Terrace also being used as speedway

North Cowichan – I read the letter by Peter Buehl with sadness. A young dog lost his life so that someone could save a minute. I have had a dog seriously injured by an aggressive driver. Her injuries cost over $6,000. She lost her innocence after the accident. She was never the same.

I live on Trillium Terrace.

This street, too, is used as a speedway. I am appalled at the speed of some travellers. And, yes, I have a personal interest. I too have a young dog. She is 10 months old and is still in the learning stage. She knows that when the front door opens, she is to get in the car. But sometimes, Katie forgets. She hears a dog barking and has on occasion run onto Trillium Terrace.

I am hard on her heals to bring her home but she is 10 months old. She can run like the wind. Twice now I have stood in the middle of Trillium Terrace to get cars to slow down. One young driver was really upset with me but his speed was way beyond the posted limit.

I do not believe that anyone or anything should lose their lives because of a moment of inattention. Like Peter, all I ask is that people slow down to the posted limit and be prepared for anything. I shudder to think of a child in front of a 2,000 pound car.
