Claudia Modelska started this petition to Hamilton City Council and

This is a call to the public, to the City of Hamilton. There needs to be a change. The speed limit must be lowered on Wilson St E, Ancaster ON, and add a hidden driveway sign by a bend in the road. The limit is currently at 70km/hr, and needs to be down to 50km/hr. Here’s why:

This is a very busy street, hundreds of people use it daily. I live on it. I’ve witnessed cars in ditches, transport trucks destroyed, and many other accidents, such as cars getting rear-ended. I’ve seen wildlife such as deers get hit. There is a popular attraction called Tiffany Falls, where many people walk along this street. There are also many cyclists who use this street. Obviously many people go above the speed limit, which means that some go up to 80-90km/hr. This ties in to the need for a hidden driveway sign. My house is close to the bend, where it is hard to see the road. We do not know when cars are coming or what speed they are going at. This stresses my family, myself included, as every time we pull in/out is a risk. This sign can make drivers aware and more cautious of what lies ahead. This has been a problem for years. But very recently, my precious dog passed away, as she was hit by a car coming from around the bend. This is what inspired me to make a change. I want to do this in her honour. Much of life is at risk, both animal and human. Help me make this change, and it will save lives.
