Letter: School speed zone needed at 200 Street and 53 Avenue

Editor: My son lives at 53 Avenue and 200 Street in Langley.

His son’s school is on the corner. The playing field runs along 200. There is a fence, (but) I don’t understand why there is no playground sign for cars to slow down on 200 Street.

Cars are racing — yes, racing — in what should be a school zone. It is dangerous to cross the street there, never mind all the kids that cross there every day.

Why is this not a marked school zone? The cars line up at the light and race down 200 Street. (There are) never any police there. Are they waiting till someone gets killed?
