Four-way stop is a welcome improvement

It demonstrates vision and consideration for the safety and welfare of our community

Thank you District of Hope administration and staff for the four-way stop installed at Kawkawa Lake Road and 7th Ave.

As a resident of the area, I have witnessed many drivers who would whip up the hill from Coquihalla campsite, blindly heading into the intersection and oblivious or ignoring pedestrians attempting to cross the street.

Tillicum Centre students who regularly walk and/or bike to school, ambulances, SD78 bus yard and rec centre/event traffic, elderly drivers and the general public coming from the hospital area trying to turn left onto Kawkawa Lake Road can be more assured they can now navigate this intersection in a safe manner, without the fear of being mowed down or t-boned.

With almost daily hit and run tragedies in the news and dark, rainy nights on the way, this proactive traffic pattern change is a welcome improvement and demonstrates vision and consideration for the safety and welfare of our community.

Teri Bergmann,

Hope
