City mismanaging traffic flow efforts

Central Alberta’s recent weather should be the reality check for our city council and city manager.

They’ve planted a lot of crap on city streets: dividers and concrete islands, etc. All of this is in the name of making us slow down and smell the roses.

I am sure the city’s own plow crews and their contractors would like the dangerous wheel- and blade-breaking concrete gone as well. The consultants we hire to tell us how our streets should be actually need to come from a city that has ice and snow and not from Victoria (which mostly only sees rain).

I think council and city managers need to drop their subscription to Urban magazine and get the traffic moving as smoothly as possible under all circumstances year round.
