Several people I have spoken to would like to see the speed limit on Albert Road and the lower portion of County Road 15 (within Inverhuron limits) lowered from 50 km/h to a Maximum 40 km/h (though 30km/h would be even better we're thinking of winter too when fewer people are out and about).
This is a busy residential and pedestrian environment, especially in summer, filled with older residents, families, and children, with driveways and side streets that have reduced visibility due to the local vegetation.
It only makes sense that our speed limit is lowered in this residential community, and thus, in turn, encouraging people who are just "cutting through" to use County Road 23 (B-line) instead.
In several instances, day and night, we have witnessed vehicles traveling on Albert Road in excess of 60 km/h. This is both inconsiderate and dangerous. It would be nice if the Municipality would delegate more of that $2.256 Million (2019) in taxpayer dollars we spend on Policing to the Inverhuron area.
If you agree the speed limit should be lowered to 40 km/h on Albert Road and County Road 15 (west of the Inverhuron entry sign) please take a moment to email our mayor Anne Eadie, local councillors, and the Kincardine Police Services Board.

On the part regarding how people speed in our community, I offer this video evidence, the piece lasts 25 seconds and was filmed late one night on Albert Road, Inverhuron, Ontario.
My email will be on the April 10th agenda of the Kincardine Police Services Board.
