Speed limit signs needed at intersection

I usually don’t write in but I felt I should this time. It is in regards to the city nailing people for speeding just north of Sacred Heart Church. Full disclosure – I did get a speeding ticket for going 64km/hr.

I turned north from Ross street and see no signs saying 50km/hr. Now, if the City is so concerned about people speeding, they should put the speed limit sign so people know.

Most of the people I have seen getting nailed are not speeding in an unsafe way. They, like me, assume that the speed limit is 60km/hr. You would think a 3 lane road would be more than 50km/hr. Taylor Dr. is 60km/hr and it is two lanes, while 67 street is 70km/hr.

I would like the City to do the right thing and put signs up making people aware of the speed limit.
