Many large trucks and other vehicles speed down this section of road. Road is narrow, has no centre marking, and is a river terrace unsuitable for this type and volume of traffic. Area also subject to car enthusiast by-law, so obvious problem area. Easy alternative high volume route available via Opawa Rd/Chapmans Rd. Suggested solution is narrowing and/or speed bumps along the river terrace part of this route, with signage posted at 3 points on Garlands Rd advising trucks to take alternate route. Private vehicles recently damaged by passing vehicles, including wing mirrors broken off, and near misses for pedestrians. Very high risk of fatality or serious injury if pedestrians hit due to size speed and volume of traffic.
