  1. Thanks so much for sending this along.

    You may be interested to know that this morning the City of Ottawa has two traffic spotters at the corner of Merivale and Island Park Dr. I asked them the purpose of their activity and they said it was just to note the number of vehicles using the road(s) as that junction. Their work does not involve tracking the types of vehicles.

    I have been hounding the NCC, the City, the police and our elected representatives for a couple of years about the use of Island Park Drive by commercial vehicles. You would be astounded by what I have learned. Because of the overflow of traffic on IPD, many vehicles cut through local sidestreets to get to and from their destination, and they do so, often, at excessive speed.
