'Let’s have the speed limit changed to 60 km/h from Creekside to the highway bridge in Function.'

Highway 99.

The 80 kilometre/hour speed limit [on Highway 99] from Function Junction to Creekside is too fast.

If we have a 60 km/h limit past Emerald, all the way to the heliport, why is 80 km/h OK going through the sharp turns before or after Creekside (depending on the direction of travel)?

We have the highway warriors heading to town at full speed past Function, towards Spring Creek Community School, where the drivers are trying to get in and out.

Along with regular traffic, there are loaded logging trucks ripping downhill, at the maximum speed limit, on snowy, icy roads from Creekside.

Let’s have the speed limit changed to 60 km/h from Creekside to the highway bridge in Function.

Please give enough time and distance in winter conditions. Be courteous and patient. Drive safe. Thank you.
