Reduce Speed Limit on Grey Road 18, Owen Sound!
As residents on Grey Road 18, near Owen Sound, who have children, we have noticed an increase in speeding and unsafe driving and plan to petition Grey County to reduce the speed limit from 80 km/ hour to 60km/ hour between Concession Road 10 and Grey County Road 11 (east of Rockford). Grey Road 18 between Concession 10 and Grey County Road 11 is highly residential and an 80 km/hr speed limit (highway speed) is no longer appropriate or safe.
Issues include: the safety of children, especially school bus stops and walking along road to homes, poor stopping sight distance due to vertical curves, high number of residential entrances, increased frequency in speeding and stunt driving (at least 50km over the speed limit) and generally dangerous driving (i.e.passing on solid lines).
Please sign below if you support this petition for a reduction in speed and to improve safety. Please include your address in the comment section.
