LETTER: Traffic on Victoria Rd in Revelstoke

An MVA at Charles & Victoria earlier in December should be a wake up call to City Hall !

A few years ago they installed traffic lights by the crossing at the Railway Museum. I live in Columbia Park and so I’m on this route EVERY day 2-3 times.

Over the years, I have found that the lights were needed twice by traffic trying to cross Victoria Ave. That’s it. Just twice in several years. But how many times have I been stuck on Charles, along with other vehicles, trying to get onto Victoria Ave ? Many, many times! And that’s a daily occurrence.

Now maybe the traffic that uses the crossing by the Museum is warranted and I don’t see it, but I doubt it when compared to Charles and Vic.

Am I suggesting to remove the signal and relocate it up a couple of blocks ? Possibly. Simply add another light ? I don’t know. Put up a four way stop?

Look, I don’t know what the answer is but after seeing this accident last week, we should do something before there is a more serious outcome and we are forced to change because of a death. Please don’t let it be mine, or if it is, at least name it after me, so I don’t die in vain.
