Blotto - "...Now, try driving 30km/h. It will be almost 'mentally' impossible without the presence of other physical factors." Would a school-age child stepping out in front of your vehicle be considered a 'physical factor'?

I taught elementary school children in the north end (on John St.) for many years and advocated for safe walking and safe cycling. The City listened to residents and changed the speed to 30kph. Guess what? The sky did not fall in. People do it and you can too. You just have to overcome your selfish reasons for driving too fast. Your perceived 'right' to get to work 1 or 2 minutes earlier does not take priority over the health, safety and very lives of children, the elderly and everyone in between from walking safely in their own neighbourhood.
