Hi Cam

I am writing to raise a concern that i feel required your attention.Recently as you know the speed limit around out schools has been lowered.I live on Deerpath drive and travel imperial road daily.Twice while i was traveling in the spped zone i experienced road rage.Ones i could  see the driver obviously telling me off before passing me the second the car behind me was 3/4 of the way into the center lane.I think that 30 km/hr is way too slow and i see there is a double standard where some schools are 30 and some 40.I would like to see the limit raise to 40 and flashing lights installed indicating the speed limit reduction during schools busiest time Thank you J.
