Residents of Glencrest Ave. in Côte Saint Luc are outraged at the impending death of all their children.
You might think Côte Saint Luc is a relatively safe, quiet place, being an urban peninsula that isn’t on the way to anywhere. And a where-is-that-again street like Glencrest would be a pretty quiet, low-traffic place in that quiet, low-traffic town.
But you naive baby-killing street-racing maniacs either don’t care about children or you don’t understand the nature of the problem here.
Glencrest is immersed in traffic. People can’t cross the street safely anymore. And yet while the city says it is looking into the issue, the death trap continues to threaten the lives of innocents and residents are prisoners in their own homes, too afraid to step outside.
The evidence is irrefutable: according to a count by a city engineer, Glencrest sees 150 cars … a day.
That’s one car passing through this five-block street every 9.6 minutes.
We must rise up and hold these heartless politicians to account until this street is once again safe for our children.
