It was a discussion on a Facebook group that originally brought Tweedsmuir resident, Gesa Harmston, together with a few of her neighbours – Catherine Rossiter, Rebecca McPhee Irwin, Krista Charbonneau – to finally do something about the speeding cars on their quiet residential street in Westboro.
Gesa, who first moved into her new home in March 2012, lives on Tweedsmuir, a stone’s throw from Byron Avenue. “It’s unbelievable how fast people drive,” says Gesa. “We have kids. I do not feel comfortable having our kids play on the street. I even had a woman come so fast around the corner she came up on our front lawn with her car.”
Contributing to this, as well, is also the lack of sidewalks on Tweedsmuir.https://kitchissippi.com/2018/05/14/reduced-speed-limit-westboro-ottawa/?utm_source=Kitchissippi+Times+Readers&utm_campaign=ab84865193-May+15+2018+Mailchimp&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_4643162cb8-ab84865193-94896761
