Letter: Rutland a ‘free-for-all on every street’

Drivers are using our residential streets as racetracks…drug dealers meet customers at random locations using vehicles as their store.

To the editor:

You need not leave your home to see what’s become of Rutland.

Far too many drivers are using our residential streets as racetracks and it’s getting many resident’s very angry.

You can see what the lack of law enforcement has created. It has created an all-out free-for-all on every street.

Aggressive driving, distracted driving, failure to stop at stop signs, and an excess of noisy vehicles litter the roads in Rutland.

Drug dealing in our residential neighbourhoods is also an ongoing issue that is out of control as dealers meet customers at random locations using vehicles as their store.

The lack of response from the RCMP and Kelowna city council is a serious problem that has left many homeowners and residents all out of options in finding resolution to the destruction of their neighbourhoods.

Speed bumps and traffic calming measures are not solutions, wake up city manager and start doing what you get paid for!

Bruce Orydzuk, Kelowna
