Dismayed with discourteous speeders, litterers

Open letter to speeders and litter bugs:

Nisga’a Highway a.k.a. Kalum Lake Road is still a residential area. The speed limit is 60 km/h. Children use this roadway to get to and from their school bus stops. I’ve had people passing right in front of my driveway, before the old Terrace Landfill, to really let loose on that straight stretch. On nice days we want to enjoy biking in OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD and the blind corners with no shoulder can be particularly treacherous if people are not following the road rules. The extra 30 seconds you gain by being impatient puts others at risk! SLOW DOWN.

On another related topic in the same vein as being a good citizen: we recently went to enjoy Lost Lake, another lovely feature of our neighbourhood and were deeply dismayed to see the amount of garbage carelessly cast aside. There may be no garbage bin at this location but that doesn’t absolve people from taking garbage with them until they can find a place for it. I would love to enjoy all of the natural places we have in our community without the eye sore for once. Not to mention litter is a risk for wildlife. Please do better!
