Big wheels don’t stop turning

I was very glad to see that article, but from the look of things the drivers that continue to run stop signs in Oak Bay aren’t listening.

Re: On the Road, Rick Anthony’s article Big Wheels must stop at the red octagon, (Opinion May 2).

I was very glad to see that article, but from the look of things the drivers that continue to run stop signs in Oak Bay aren’t listening or reading.

I live on Currie Road, just behind the Oak Bay Marina, and walk almost everywhere I go. The two main stop signs that I see everyday, Currie and Beach Drive and Windsor and Beach Drive, whether you’re turning right or left, are the worst.

Today on one on my walks, I stood at the rail on the ocean side at the bottom of Windsor and watched the traffic coming up to those two stop signs.

One in 10 cars actually stopped. The rest used it as a yield sign.
