7346 106 Street Grande Prairie, AB
The new crosswalk at the corner of Kateri Drive and 106 Street is not working AGAIN this morning. This crosswalk has not been working on and off since it was installed. More often than not (at least 9 out of 10 times in the past 3 weeks that we have used it - which we use 4-8 times daily) is not lighting up. Kateri Drive is a busy road, with no posted speed limit. There is a school close by, and many children walking either to bus stops, or to school that are not safe when crossing Kateri Drive due to the high volume and speed of traffic in the area. There is also street parking allowed on Kateri Drive, which results in extremely LOW visibility. As a result the vehicles are not always able to see the kids and vice versa. This also applies to turning in and out of this area when driving. This is an extremely dangerous intersection. And although many of the adults and children use extreme caution many do not.
