First, as someone who walks every morning, it is easy to see that very few are keeping to the speed limits.

Two spots where there is no question are Mariner Way and all along Austin Avenue, and in particular on Austin between Blue Mountain Street and North Road.

It would be good if Coquitlam RCMP enforced the law to prevent death and injury. Port Moody Police sure stand tall when it comes to speed limit enforcement.

Second, where are we going again with all this highrise development?

No one in the world would give a green light to this except, of course, our wonderful city council.

Well, best of luck to bring traffic to a complete stop.

More highrises the better, you say? What stupidity.

Brian Robinson, Coquitlam
