Restore Safety Back to Our Neighborhood
We want the City of Oshawa to implement Traffic Calming Measures on our street. While we understand that Oxford is a very busy street, there are speed limits that are not being enforced. We witness drivers of all types of vehicles flying down our road at all times of the day and night, making it feel as if we live on a freeway.
We propose a 3 way stop sign intersection at the North entrance of Venus Crescent and Oxford Street. This will not allow drivers to get too fast heading south from Wentworth into our neighborhood. It will also stop drivers who are heading north and had to stop at the South Entrance. They will not be able to accelerate all the way up to the lights at Wentworth, making our community more at risk for a fatality.
Our neighborhood does NOT want it to be the death of a child, a teenager, a cyclist, a mom or dad, a husband or wife, a grandparent until there is real change on our street.
Ultimately our community wants to be proactive, responsible and safe- is that too much to ask for?
Let's work together as a community to achieve the safety we deserve in this neighborhood.
