No joke, but it's becoming one

Now that the city council has decided not to delay the construction of a regional school on the soccer fields at Eldorado and Erin Ridge, it is time to get really serious about the traffic flow on Eldorado Drive.
Two blocks long, two lane residential street, bus route, lots of youngsters, senior citizens, huge windrows in the winter and spring taking away about one third of the road, garbage and recycle pickup route, shortcut to St. Albert Trail from northeast St. Albert, soon to be the bus route for students at the new school, driving route to and from school for those students with cars and frustrated traffic from residents for which the road was originally built.
Can anyone even imagine trying to back out of a driveway in the winter on a Monday morning?
I will probably buy another car to park in front of my house so that I have the option to take my wife to a day program and not risk our lives trying to back out into the freeway in front of our house.
We will need: speed bumps, lots of them; maximum 30 K speed limit; continuous photo radar and; residential parking permits.
This is no joke! But it will become one. Anyone want to but a nice little bungalow on Eldorado Drive?
