Two-way street is the answer

A two-way street is the answer, go all the way down Beacon Avenue go around the roundabout and back to town on the two-way

I have lived in Saanichton for 43 years and do all my shopping in Sidney. Have you ever tried going down the one-way street in Sidney and found someone driving right at you? I have had to blow my horn and get the person to back up. This has happened several times.

A two-way street is the answer, go all the way down Beacon Avenue go around the roundabout and back to town on the two-way. Please consider this, also for the tourists who come to town and leave as they can’t figure out how to go all the way down Beacon to get back to the one way street.

I think it is bad for tourists, who would otherwise stay and shop in our neat shops. We need the business in our great town.
