I’ve lost count of the number of times I ahave almost been hit by a speeding car on Crescent Road.

The speed limit in this area drops from 50 km/h to 30, but most drivers don’t even slow down to 80. They come flying around the corner – often in the cycling lane, shocking those who are trying to cross, and being startled by the sudden appearance of a pedestrian.

Several years ago, Surrey council held a meeting in Elgin to get feedback regarding establishing a crosswalk, but we are still waiting.

There still isn’t a crosswalk in the more than 16 blocks between King George Boulevard and 128 Street.
