The Crosswalk Safety Society of Nova Scotia is questioning the municipality's plan for traffic calming.
Many councillors want to see an additional $1,000,000 designated to traffic calming projects in the 2021-2022 Capital Plan. That would nearly double the existing amount going toward the program.
Norm Collins is president of the Crosswalk Safety Society and says he's not convinced this money is being spent on roads that have the most vehicle-pedestrian collisions.
"It's good to invest money, but we need to invest money where it makes the biggest difference," said Collins. "My view is, that's on Waverly Rd. and Main St. and Woodlawn, that respectively are the most dangerous."
Traffic calming measures include speed humps, raised intersections and crosswalks, and mini roundabouts.
Council will continue budget talks on Wednesday.
