Tanner says he should have "investigated the site"? HE LIVES on that street. Can hardly wait until we get new "leadership". DT has been a laughingstock for almost 20 years.

When are they going to restore Canada road to its previous lane width? There are 2 safety issues with the new narrow lanes. This is a two way 35 mph street which means oncoming cars approach each other at 70mph relative speed and the 10.5 foot wide lanes without a median are too narrow for safety. There will be a head on collision and it will be serious. In addition drivers have to leave 3 feet space from bicyclists which means cars can not pass cyclists without crossing the center divide. I am not sure how these narrow lanes could be approved but it is a safety issue and is dangerous. The Town Council needs to adjust this back to the previous width or be held responsible for any injury or accident that occurs because of the narrow lanes. A serious accident will happen on this section of Canada. Let's hope the Town adjusts these lanes before that happens.
