I WAS saddened to hear about the death of yet another of our young people on the local road.
Eleven Mile Drive has become an alternative route for Eglinton, which is now a large suburb, and beyond.
The speed limit is 80 kilometres per hour, but it is my experience that drivers prefer to drive much faster.
There has been a shoulder removed from the road just past my home and through the night, I can see and hear the cars travelling at speeds well over the 60km/h zone where I live.
I would like the question answered as to why, as a community, we were not consulted as to the removal of the shoulder, as any one of the residents would agree that the road appears 'a faster' road but it is much more dangerous to navigate the sharp turn.
I am not saying other factors may not have contributed to this and other accidents, but it has become too dangerous for my kids to even collect the rubbish bins.
So sorry that a family now is in mourning for their son.
