No truck is a (traffic) island?
An experiment? Traffic flow was slowed by the presence of this work vehicle parked on the centre line of Governors Road (just west of Creighton) for several hours - the physical presence of the truck (and the warning signage) forced vehicles to proceed carefully. This same result could be achieved with a traffic median/island at this location as part of traffic calming measures to create safer pedestrian/cycling environments east of the school zone.
