Stop signs and speed bumps

The comments of some recent posts have some extensive debates taking place.

Now, let's throw open another debate. What is Burnaby's top civic priority? Traffic calming (see above)? Public safety? Homelessness? Economic development? Burnaby Lake? The environment? Gateway? Regional issues? Water turbidity? None of the above?

Good citizens, let it fly in the comments.

Absolutely agreed.
Burnaby traffic calming is gone over the top. Their speed bumps are big time overkill.
Unless you have a Ford Explorer going slow over these things risks damaging the average car.
I have a friend who lives on Turner street just west of Willingdon who has to drive over these monstrosities daily and can't stand them.
The strange part is that many of these bumps are one after another and of different heights which probably means they are not built to spec but it's left up to how the crew feels that day.
If one goes just west of Boundary on Adanac the City of Vancouver speed bumps are stretched out and easier to drive over.
Burnaby could take a lesson from Vancouver on this one.

How about Derek The Crab and his wanting a totalitarian benevolent dictatorship?

Traffic calming? No problemo.

Public Safety? More RCMP constables
(have to keep those drunks who drive
red toy cars in check ;-)

Homelessness? Get the BCA off their
collective asses and start actually doing something for our homlesspeople.
If Surrey can do it, we can do better.

Economic development? No problemo.

Burnaby Lake? It will turn into a swamp in 70 years anyway.

The environment? Too many emissions from City Hall on council nights.

Gateway? Go for it But no cycle bridge.

Regional issues? Build the damb Evergreen Line.

Water turbidity? change the filter in
the tap.
