Resident wants alley blocked

As a resident of 5319 Drader Crescent, I strongly favour closing off the alley located behind my residence.

Dear Editor:

As a resident of 5319 Drader Crescent, I strongly favour closing off the alley located behind my residence. We have concerns about this unsafe alley and have seen a few mishaps.

My kids and others almost get hit daily; not to mention our family pets who are just sitting in our yard. The drivers who often cut through this alley, cut the corner and use our lawn as part of the road allowance. Often they speed through this area as well, spitting and sliding on the gravel. On one occasion, the back of our son’s parked car was even run into.

I want this alley blocked off and area users shouldn’t mind driving on the public roads specifically built for that area.

Carla Bourke and family
