Speed reduction measures in Beach Grove

Problem
Excessive speeding along 16th Ave is becoming more and more prevalent. I am certain along other streets in Beach Grove speed is an issue. The first speed reduction bump eastbound on 16th ave is not until Farrell ave. Conversely westbound it is the last bump. Speeders eastbound are not forced to reduce to speed until Farrel, while cars westbound greatly accelerate after Farrel. Beach Grove is a 30km/h neighbourhood.

Solution
The addition of speed control measures at the entrance to Beach Grove.

Personal story
I live on 16th ave and have four young children. For the eight years I have lived here I have witnessed dangerously reckless speeding along 16th. Putting not only children at risk but all persons enjoying the casual nature of the area. After many discussions with the Corporation of Delta they recommended starting a petition to present to council. I will happily go before council to argue the importance of speed reduction controls in the area. Fortunately in my experience so far I have not witnessed or heard of any serious incidents causing harm to an individual. All it will take is one incident for people to pay attention to the issue. Why wait?
