Driving on the Greenway

The location of the Christmas tree sales moved across the street to the north east corner of Arbutus and 8th Ave – where there is no parking. So people buying trees are now driving on the Greenway and parking on the grass.

The Van Connect app doesn’t have a way to report this issue.

ICBC responded “As this is a law enforcement matter, you’re best to consult with local police.”

  1. I’m surprised you didn’t supply photos of the other vehicle(s) license plates parked on the grass. They got there by also driving on the Greenway too. It would be interesting to see if their vehicles have the novice driver stickers too.

  2. “The Van Connect app doesn’t have a way to report this issue.”… That’s right, if it’s not on their list of issues, they are not interested in it.

    Instead, they expect you to call 3-1-1 and wait an interminable amount of time so they can log the incident, then tell you it’s not a priority for them but they will forward it to the appropriate department, whom you will never hear from again.desite asking for a response. If you wish to enquire on the status of the issue, yup, call 3-1-1 again.

    In the interim, you no doubt read or heard from CoV Communications staff complaining about how 3-1-1 is so overwhelmed witj citizens calling about minor matters and complaints.
