Q&A - View Obstructed by Fences and Foliage
We have too many "blind" corners in our communities. I have had and seen many "near misses" because drivers cannot see around trees and shrubbery when attempting to turn onto a street. It is often impossible to see oncoming traffic; a case in point being at the corner of McDonald Ave. and Back Road where growth of grass, weeds etc force drivers to pull out too far in order to see oncoming traffic. Many 4-way stops in Comox have hedges and trees growing --sometimes blocking the Stop signs entirely. Property owners should be told when their bushes and trees pose a hazard to visibility and perhaps be asked to trim them, or have the city do it.
