LETTER: Surrey bylaw ‘enforcement’ in East Clayton ridiculous

The Editor,

Re: "Ticketed residents riled over reconfiguration," the Now, Nov. 20.

In Surrey, 192nd Street was supposed to be a four-lane road but because people were up in arms about losing street parking, the city only put in two lanes and the silly bike lanes and posted signs saying still that it is only temporary parking. I have only once seen anyone using the bike lane – and that was today.

I find it absolutely hilarious that people are getting ticketed for their car’s wheels touching the bike lane line.

The article states that a bunch of streets like 194A Street and 68th Avenue will have parking changes coming and residents will be sent response cards, which are due Dec. 19. I live on one of these streets and it is Nov. 19 – when will these cards arrive?

I am an owner of a single-family home and I have lived here for eight years. I am sick of the stupidity that goes on here because of the city’s inability to enforce parking bylaws or suite bylaws – or any bylaws at all. But parking on a line is worth enforcement? Ridiculous.
