Pedestrians are one of the most vulnerable users of our road network, and they deserve reasonable safeguards. The intersection of 17th Street and 8th Avenue in Canmore, Alberta is busy with mixed uses. Personal vehicles, public transit, transport trucks, cyclists, and pedestrians all use this intersection throughout the day, and complicating the nature of this intersection is the fact that it is adjacent to an educational institution for highschool and K-6 students. The current speed limit is 50km/h, and we are seeking your support to have the area designated as a school zone, and have the speed limit lowered to 30km/h. There have been too many near-misses at this intersection (I witnessed one the other day where a driver wasn't paying attention and went into emergency braking as a child was entering the crosswalk that had lights flashing), and things need to change. Designating the area as a school zone is only one step that is needed to make this area safer for all road users. Education and enforcement will also be required. But we have to start somewhere, and that means bringing this to the attention of the Town of Canmore, and the school district. We need your help to do that!
