Letter: 180 Street more than chaos

Re: “Curb chaos along 180 Street,” Cloverdale Reporter, Oct. 3.

To the editor;

Re: “Curb chaos along 180 Street,” Oct. 3

To all the parents that are upset that they must wait to drop their kids off in front of Tweedsmuir, give your head a shake. You are your own worst enemy. You have caused this new construction of the streets by disobeying the rules. Make your kids walk a block or two. I am sure they can use the exercise.

I happen to live in this area and I speak for all of us who are fed up with you people blocking our driveways and streets so that we can not even get out in the morning to go to work or come home without fighting through the mass traffic jams that you are creating – and have been doing so for years. Your parking habits are illegal and you are teaching your kids to disobey the rules.

No wonder your kids think the same way. (God help us when they actually grow up and supposedly assume responsibility for their own actions, oh you have taught them well). When you are parked on the street  for over 15 or more minutes to wait for your “adult child,” that is not considered stopping, that is considered parking. I can only hope that all of you get tickets, especially now since ICBC does the collection! And I will do my best to call traffic enforcement to see that they show up.
