Calgary City Councillor, Druh Farrell has decided that Calgary is moving too fast. She is on a mission to stop those pesky drivers from racing down the roads at a “dangerous” 50 km/h.
Her solution? She wants to reduce the default speed limit in Calgary to 30 kilometres an hour, effectively turning every city street into a playground zone.
It's clear that these socialists will stop at nothing to take a car off the road.
Don’t misunderstand, this is directly targeting sub-urban families for a reason. These councillors have an agenda to fundamentally change the way in which Calgary operates.
Farrell claimed that it would “only add 30 seconds” to everyone’s drive each way. She claimed that this was the "number one" issue that Calgarians were speaking to her about.
Given the widespread unemployment, the crumbling roads, and city hall gambling Calgary’s future on the corrupt Olympic bidding process, Druh, you might just be a little off the mark on that one.
These lefties will not be satisfied until every family minivan has been traded in for a bus pass.
On the face of it, it seems like just a tax grab. After all, the City annually collects around $20 million in photo radar taxes, just think about the bike lanes they can build when that number triples in 2019!

The speeding limit on Calgary residential roads should stay at 50km/hour.
