A Rawdon resident fed up with speeding motorists on his street decided to film it all and circulate the video in a bid to embarass the town to do something about it.
Church Street has become a virtual race course, said Ron Hachey who`s lived there for over 40 years. He cited the growing population and the street's link to the commercial district, often seen as a shortcut. His video shows the majority of cars speeding through the stop sign.
"Two weeks ago, some little girl nearly got hit on my street. I said, 'That`s the end of this, I'm doing something about it,' " Hachey told CJAD 800 News.
Mayor Bruno Guilbault said they`ve studied the situation and traffic-slowing measures such as posts to narrow the street are coming soon.
"If they came today, I'd put them up myself. I'm waiting on them any day now," Guilbault said, adding that he's had to deal with delivery delays.
Guilbault said speedbumps and traffic lights are not practical because of the nearby firestation. Hachey doesn't agree but he said for now, he'll take any measures that'll help and he'll believe it when he sees it.
"I've been doing it for ten years, this is not the first time. I've been through three mayors, three councils there. Same story, same thing all the time."
