People are being injured and dying on a particular section of Highway 97 between Summerland and Peachland. In parts the road is steep, has sharp corners, and the slope of the road in the corners is low on the outside, making it dangerous especially in winter conditions. Drivers who go too fast or don't adjust their speed for road conditions often drift into oncoming traffic causing serious harm or death. 

It's time for the Province of BC, Premier Horgan, and the Honourable Claire Trevena, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure to install concrete barriers in between the two directions of traffic. This will hopefully prevent further accidents causing injury or death. 

I urge you to sign this petition to let our politicians know they need to do the right thing, save lives, prevent injuries, and save the costs of health care and insurance claims for the taxpayer. 

The Province of BC and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure needs to install concrete barriers in between the two directions of traffic on Highway 97 north of Summerland and south of Peachland. It could save a life - maybe your own or the life of a loved one.
