No matter where you live, it’s an issue you confront every day. At times you’re suffering from it; other times you’re the one inflicting it on others.
Ottawa, we have a speeding problem.
We all do it. We barely notice ourselves going too fast. But we hate it when others fly past us.
(...)Tobi Nussbaum, the councillor for Rideau-Rockliffe who will soon become CEO of the National Capital Commission, says the need to reduce speeding is a top priority for his constituents. “Improving transportation safety is one of the topics I hear from residents about most often and it is something that I have put a lot of focus and emphasis on as a city councillor.” Speeding, he says, happens everywhere, but like the rest of us he’s especially troubled by “incidences of speeding in school zones, near parks and in our residential neighbourhoods.”https://ottawacitizen.com/opinion/columnists/pellerin-ottawa-were-addicted-to-speed-and-it-has-to-stop
