Drivers and children of Port Alberni are in danger of a serious accident. Drivers are fighting their way through the 2 busy lanes of traffic twice a day. Alberni Elementary is located on the corner of Johnston Rd (considered Hwy 4) and Helen st. This requires drivers to squeeze through 2 lanes of busy traffic. Also on the opposite corner is Tim Hortons the only coffee shop you pass by directly to continue your drive to the west coast. Port Alberni is considered the "gateway" to the west coast and there is a high volume of traffic using this route to travel to see bc's beautiful west coast. Safety needs to addressed there has been numerous near misses and crosswalks are dangerous. Picture you are a mother walking home with your 2 young children, you check both directions and proceed across the crosswalk after stepping of the curb you see a car headed right for you! Yesterday, I witnessed a mother grab her children and pull them out of the path of an oncoming vehicle. As this car stops suddenly trying to avoid hitting people in the crosswalk a vehicle in the right hand lane nearly hits the back of the car. This needs to change please help keep our streets safe and sign this petition for action!
