I too find this article a little disingenuous.

I'm not against lowering the speed along Cootes Drive to 60km. I'm not sure that would prevent any turtles from being struck however. As for protecting pedestrians, the city has done a lot. Installing a 'crosswalk' light is a positive, as is the reduced speed to 50km/r. 40km/h was simply to slow coming off an 80km/h stretch. Perhaps reducing the speed to 60km/r will make this more doable.

Finally, the students themselves need to take some responsibility here. They are forever jaywalking or crossing against the light, often completely oblivious to car traffic. It's a real issue.
