A lot of money for art

I want to comment on the art piece at the McCallum Road roundabout.  First of all, that is a lot of money to spend on a piece of art, when we should be looking at saving money.  It is a distraction for drivers,  and thus becomes a safety issue.  Cell phones are banned, apparently eating while driving is also being considered as a distraction.  I think this is a waste of taxpayers’ money.  This is not the place for this type of structure.  I sure hope the Clearbrook Road roundabout does not get one.
