Letter: Downtown traffic is dangerous

By Melinda Sinclair, Vancouver

With the sunshine, longer days and loud, fast, obnoxious vehicles, downtown Vancouver has become a terrible place to live. This is insanity at its finest. Residents who live here at Smith Tower are afraid to cross the street with fear of being hit by a negligent driver. I witnessed a motorcycle do wheelies for blocks at a time (I was following behind him).

We need assistance in this matter. This is crime and the elderly residents who live here are at their wit’s end.
