LETTERS: Someone could be killed on South Surrey ‘raceway’

Dangerous stretch of road being ignored, writes resident


The section of 18 Avenue in South Surrey between 152 Street, and 154 Street, has become a virtual raceway.

This particular area of road is under a 30 km/h speed limit. I have seen very few cars obey the limit, more likely 20, 30, 40 km/h over.

There is racing for the 152 Street traffic light, passing over the double yellow line, and near misses with pedestrians.

These events do not just occur once in a while, but go on all day long.

This section of road also is the southern border of Bakerview Park, and I am worried that someone is going to be hurt or killed if this isn’t addressed very soon. It is just being ignored.
