Speed reduction on Little Ave
Add speed bumps on Little Ave to slow the speeders down. This is an area with MANY children playing or even walking/bike riding with family. I would like to suggest two speed bumps: one between Fairview and Bayview on Little and the other between Bayview and Huronia also on Little. I have heard countless stories and been witness to far too many close calls & accidents in these areas. We need to keep our children and families safe.
The City has launched a new interactive tool for residents to suggest locations in Barrie where they would like to see speed cushions installed: https://bit.ly/BarrieSpeedCushions
Residents can use this application to submit a location, or “like” a location already submitted, for the City to consider putting a speed cushion in 2021. The City will collect submissions until November 13, 2020.
The submissions received from the public will be shared with Members of Council in January 2021 to help councillors decide where speed bumps should be placed in each ward in 2021.

No motorcycle on earth can get to 100k on little ave. Stop lying Karen
Lastly what do you want us to do with the noisy vehicles Karen. Harly Davidson’s are legal and can be driven anywhere. Are we gonna go ban every single harly Davidson and even electric car because of their own pitch noise? Life’s too good to you karen
First off we’re not a town, we’re a city and no speed is not an “issue”. What is an issue is you Karen whining about mythical “speeders” and misusing our police force. Trying to make innocent people “criminals”. The roads you mentioned are constantly under construction. How on earth does a person speed when the entire road is under construction and is bottle knocked? Those accidents were not caused by speed they just speculated without any facts.

Speed is an issue in many areas of town. Hurst, Coxmill, Yonge Street from Little and south to Mapleview to name a few. I have had several conversations with Barrie Police traffic department and the sergeant in charge indicated they were going to address the issue. To date there has been no noticeable change. Within a few days last week, there were 3 catastrophic accidents in Barrie resulting in 2 deaths and emergency air lift to Toronto trauma centre. Speed was listed in the news as a factor. If speeding is no longer an issue with the police perhaps there should be another branch that deals with speeding. Further, there have been a drastic increase excessively noisy vehicles and motorcycles that speed through neighbourhoods.

I would like to add this is just a suggestion that some form of speed reduction be used to keep people of all ages safe. I have personally seen 3 seperate motorcyclists today alone driving erratically and speeding excessively. I understand this is a bus route but something needs to change before someone gets killed.
The motorcycles and with small cars, trucks use the Little Ave as the speed strip. Personally have observed motorcycles mostly clocking over 100 kilometres an hour at least on Little Ave.
Karen. Drivers don’t race anywhere Karen. You are the problem. Blaming people and then abuse the police service. This has to stop karen
There should be one one the crest of the hill just past (east oftYonge on Little. Drivers race up and down that hill all the time.
