Park-and-ride lot is not safe

There are several incidents of break-ins to vehicles at 103 Avenue and 160 Street each week.

As the latest victim in the current rash of “smash and grab” incidents at the park-and-ride lot at 103 Avenue and 160 Street near the Port Mann Bridge, I suggest that this lot be shut down.

According to authorities, there are several incidents of break-ins to vehicles at this lot each week, and in spite of the lighting and the security camera that has been installed, the vandalism and thefts continue. The tow truck driver who towed my damaged vehicle admitted that he is called to that same lot weekly.

TransLink advertises the park-and-ride as a “safe and convenient” alternative, but my experience is that park-and-ride is dangerous, and results in damage to one’s vehicle, expensive repair bills, and the loss of personal items.
