Letter to the Editor: Robert Siddall

Speed limit

As a visitor to Rossland, I read the latest issue of the Rossland News in total disbelief.

Your secondary headline: Rossland Slows down to 30km.

I am not sure how this by-law came into effect, but I do know that that speed limit will be ignored by the vast majority of residents including Town Council members.

Yes, there are locations where such a speed limit is valid. But, for many of the major commuter roads, this speed limit will be totally ignored.

I can see into the future that the Town Council will have a closed-door meeting to purchase photo radar cameras.

I feel sorry for Rossland residents for being legislated in such a bizarre fashion.
