City speed limits could drop from 50km/h to 40km/h

Fall vote could mandate new limits across BC | News1130

Quote:
VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – An upcoming vote by the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) could have drivers slowing down across the province.

Victoria councillor Shellie Gudgeon says the move would blanket all cities in the province and would reduce the default un-posted speed limit from 50km/h to 40km/h.

“It would be beneficial if it was a blanket 40k and where it was necessary to have it 50, 60, 70 kilometres an hour, then it would be signed,” says Gudgeon.

...

“I’ve heard some people make some comments that this is a non-driving crowd that’s pushing this. For the record, I drive a Porsche,” she says.


Who is UBCM and who is this idiot woman? Obviously she is living in her own little world in some small enclosed part of Victoria, and has never made the trip to any of the bigger municipalities across the province.

It never fails to amaze me how blatantly stupid some of our "politicians" are...

the article doesn't even provide a rationale behind this move.

this city is trying to discourage everyone from driving or even taking the transit

ICBC offers tests in 11 different languages so we should have 11 different signs so nobody feels discriminated against.

Speed limits on Bowen Island are 40 max because the tree hungers don't want the 'precious' deer, who have free reign on the island and destroy everyone's gardens, to be harmed. I used to get yelled at to slow down while going slower than the limit. Hit a deer with your car and you are worse than hitler. Bowen has all these developments going on and rich people buying up properties who are only there seasonally. They don't give a shit about the politics of the island, speed limits, or the deer. People often speed to the cove to catch the ferry. The cops catch plenty of speeders.

Vancouver drivers are retarded. I see at least 2-3 fucked up shit from my commute around Richmond daily. I don't think decreasing the speed limit is going to benefit most people, instead they should make sure people know how to drive with more rigorous tests for both automatic and manual separately. They should also subsidize dash cams and promote them within their respective communities. Too many people get away with driving like total asshats on the road and I would be so happy if the trend was towards safe and responsible driving (doesn't mean you can't have fun....) and such.

Speed limits aren't going to change the natural flow of traffic. That for some reason just dictates itself

This city is very anti-car, this wont change in the next decade... I used t enjoy living here, but each day my enjoyment is taken away from me little by little, and the level of frustration in just doing stuff increases

Such a shame, we have such a beautiful position in the world, but that clearly attracted the retards here a number of years ago

Such a shame

They've realized people drive 80 in the 50 zones most of the time, so now they want to lower the limit in order to get more over 40 impounds.

I actually dont mind this as long as they raise most big and popular roads up to 60. Leave the default 40 limit on smaller residential roads

For example at least 70 on Cambie, 60 on Marine Dr, 70 on Oak, 60 on Granville, 60 on Kingsway etc etc.

Kinda like Richmond where they have Garden City and other "Big" roads on 60 limit

This. The BC government just doesn't like cars. With carbon tax rates and ever expanding bike lanes, it feels like they're giving a big FU to drivers.
