I have spent a lot of time working with residents of Ilan Ramon Crescent to try and come up with different traffic safety measures. Last May Traffic Engineer Charles Senekal joined me for a walkabout with residents. A number of ideas were tossed around. I took my concerns to the city's Traffic Committee and while a request for a speed hump was not within the norm for streets of this nature, Charles and I put our heads together. A few days ago new "slow down" painted lettering and arrows were placed on both curves of Ilan Ramon. High visible signs will soon be added to the mix. Residents seem pleased with the initiative. In a few weeks we will be installing a special plaque to recognize the man whom this street was named after, the late Israeli astronaut Ilan Ramon.
