Meeting On The Dangers Of Hwy 6 On The Bruce.

Tobermory | by Claire McCormack  

A second public meeting is at 7pm in Tobermory.

A meeting is scheduled for tonight in Tobermory to discuss the dangers of driving on the Bruce Peninsula.

It is the second of two meetings; the other saw about 60 people turn up at the Wiarton Arena back on October 26th.

The meetings come at a time of growing concern over safety issues on Highway 6.

Residents are looking for a way to combat speeding and stunt driving in the increasingly popular vacation area.

From late August to early October this year, five people were killed on Highway 6.
 
Steve Atchison, who lost his son, 22 year old Traves of Lambton Shores in August on the highway attended the last meeting.

Traves and three others died in a violent two-vehicle crash near Miller Lake.

Wiarton Reverand Edward Chad Honneyman died in a collision while riding his motorcycle in early October.

Bruce Peninsula OPP will be at tonight's meeting to listen to suggestions from the public.

OPP say over the Thanksgiving long weekend, 36 drivers were given tickets for traffic offences including six who were charged with Racing.

One was a black 2014 Porsche was clocked at 163 km/h in an 80 zone.

Tonight's meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Tobermory Community Centre.
