Letters: Otter Point Road is dangerous

Urgent work should be on road before serious accident happens

There is an urgent need for Road work to be done on Otter Point Road.

I was surprised to see the only work that has been accomplished since we moved here 2 1/2 years ago, was a rock on the edge of the road painted bright pink to warn of the danger, the rock could be removed in no time at all by a hoe-ram.

The road is a dangerous road for people to walk down or to sit and wait for the bus.  Since, I have been living on Pascoe Road there has been far too many car accidents. We have stopped taking my granddaughter to catch the bus for school on the corner of Pascoe and Otter Point for fear of the traffic.

I understand our council would love to beautify Sooke, but,  I believe it would be wise to spend a little more on the serious road conditions (like better lighting and fixing the road) instead.
