The following letter is addressed to Kootenay-Columbia MP Rob Morrison.
Could you please tell me why there is absolutely no RCMP speed enforcement of trucks on Highway 95?
These people set their own speed limits and write their own laws and no one cares.
They massacre the wildlife and kill/maim/destroy the lives of poor unsuspecting motorists with complete impunity. Then they get in their trucks and drive off to do it again and again and again.
I have lived here 25 years and have never seen a truck pulled over for speeding.
This morning the highway was closed at Edgewater again because of trucks and their uncontrolled, disgusting speeds.
I am terrified to drive that highway because you and the RCMP do not protect your constituents from these care-about-nothing (but themselves) motorists.
A speed camera would be a godsend in this valley.
Would you please tell me why trucks are allowed to write their own traffic laws without repercussion?
Gord Crawford, Edgewater
