Dangerous reality

THE City of Armadale’s negative response to the traffic safety concerns of residents living on Paterson Road in Mt Nasura is most disappointing (Comment News, October 7).

Actually, it is unacceptable. No amount of bureaucraticspeak can camouflage the reality, which is that it is extremely dangerous for residents to exit their driveways onto Paterson Road.

It is dangerous for motorists using Paterson Road as a thoroughfare to another destination and it is dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists using Paterson Road.

The statistics from various inquiries may say one thing but common sense and reality say another.

What common sense and reality require is traffic-calming measures on Paterson Road. We should not have to wait for a traffic fatality to occur before action is taken.
