Letters: Parking issue remains

Parking along West Coast Road is dangerous for everyone

I posed a question at the recent All Candidates Meeting asking, “How does council propose to resolve the traffic congestion and parking issue in front of the Prestige Hotel on West Coast Road?”

I would like to have the answer clarified further.  The response from Councillor Haldane was that a proposal was presented to council by Ted Shaw to solve the parking issue. That proposal was reviewed by council and they decided to decline the proposal.

I cannot help but wonder what would happen in the event of injury or death resulting from an accident, which is inevitable. I wonder how a court of law would deem liability, if a solution was possible through some give and take in a negotiated solution. This would be good for the taxpayers of Sooke by making the West Coast Road safer for all users.
