The head of an Orleans community association says there are concerns the speed humps that are set to be installed on the crash-plagued Viseneau Drive may be less effective than what a study recommended several years ago.

On Saturday night, one person was hospitalized after a collision sent an SUV driving onto a residential lawn. This comes about a month after an 18-year-old suffered serious injuries was sent crashing into a light post by a collision with another driver, who was later charged with impaired driving.

Now, Innes Ward Councillor Jody Mitic says speed humps will be implemented by the summer's end, but Pat Teolis with the Chateauneuf Community Association says the ones that are planned are not the ones a report initially recommended.
